Constipation In Infants And Babies Home Remedies – All Natural

Constipation is a common problem that is seen in almost all ages of people and is not uncommon in babies. For some it is only one time occurrence and for some it can be a chronic condition. Constipation in babies is described as a condition of passing very dry and hard stools in which the child gets lot of pain and difficulty passing his stools

But in babies mere the absence of motion cannot be regarded as constipation. Each child follows a different diet hence their bowel movements are also different. Some babies pass the stools for about 2-3 times a day and some pass their stools once in 2 to 3 days. There is nothing to worry as long as your baby’s stools are soft and normal in its color. It is a cause of concern, if the child puts a lot of pressure passing her stools and cries passing the stools that are hard and small pellets or watery stools after applying lot of pressure

Generally babies get constipated when they are dehydrated or are switched over from breast milk to formula or whole milk.
