heya - i have just had a nightmare with elijah (7weeks) and he went 8 days without a poo which is really unheard of for him.

in the end we didnt give him anything, as under a couple of months we were advised nothing is a great idea for their tummies except cooled boiled water if they are dehydrated.

i know that pure orange is supposed to be good for constipation but i would strongly recommend leaving it a little while or contacting your midwife. we were told by various different professionals that up to ten days is ok - and eight is fine for a breastfed baby,

if your little one is on a bottle apparently you can give them a little extra water when you make the feed up to help them along, and using two fingers gently massage their tummy in a clockwise direction

other than that i would really leave it until you have spoken to a health professional, i would worry giving such a little one orange juice as their tummies are so immature Smile

i agree with mari that 5 days is too young to be giving orange juice. try a little bit cool boiled water, warm baths and massage.

I think it will be better to give cooled boiled water instead of orange juice as it may be hard for baby's stomach.

If it is getting long then better to consult a doctor.

Just cooled boiled water should do the trick

Post subject: Baby Constipation Orange Juice
My little one is two weeks old and suffers with constipation including screaming and straining while trying to poop but even after all this, isn't successful getting one out. However, I heard a teaspoon of orange juice in 3oz water will help her go.

Many people on here and in other forums say not to use orange juice or any other juice to help them along especially being under 6 months. Feeling confused and a little concerned as I didn't wanna cause her more harm, I went to the doc for some advice. She said there was no harm in using any type of juice at all! She also said that a little brown sugar in water may help and would not do any harm as long as you don't use it daily, not because it would harm your baby, just that you wouldn't wanna get them used to drinking it.

So basically, I have been told by the doctor that it IS safe to use juice to help your baby poop for anyone who has the same concerns as me and keeps reading all these negative posts! Hope this helps.

PURE ORANGE JUICE, NO BITS, NO ADDED SUGAR, NOT FROM CONCENTRATE.

It's good and did work a bit for my constipated child, but it was not fully satisfactory in our case. An organic tea babies magic tea did really well to relieve my 12 week constipated baby.
