Q.

constipation

Hi Doc, I have a 10 month old baby girl. She is often very constipated. I have given her Purity prunes and have also tried honey but this does not really help. Any advice?

You are going to need to give her Duphulac after using a single infant glycerine suppository to get things started. Speak to your pharmacist about this and about the Duphulac dose.

Dufalac - (not sure about spelling) it just softens the poo, it is not a laxative.
