What can I give my 8mnth old son for constipation.

The question here is why is your 8 month old son constipated? The most common reason is the formula he is on. Try changing to Lactogen2 and see if his problem goes away. If he remains constipated please write to me again.

When my baby was terribly constipated, the doctor prescribed Duphulac syrup. I now try to give her prunes now and then and I also add a few drops of olive oil to her morning bottle if she' s constipated. I received so much advice on this subject, from brown sugar to water to giving fruit purees, etc.
