Try the Safari Prune Juice - you can buy it at any Spar, checkers etc. in the concentrated juice section. Just add 1-2 tablespoons to his milk bottle. Works like a dream!

My daughter was also like this, and still is quite constipated, and changing the milk did not help.

Also, my paediatrician said I must use Duphalac suryp, about 10ml at a time, it is absolutely natural.

Both these 2 options are natural and you can give it every day, it won''t make your baby have a hard tummy forever.

Seems that some children are just prone to getting constipated.
