What are some remedies for infant constipation?

I would like to treat it without medication.

Some good ones are straight apple juice not diluted with water. Grape juice works the same as apple juice. A good one that works great is kayro syrup mixed with their formula a couple times a day. Put like 2-3 teaspoons in the formula. You can also feed them a little bit of strained prunes baby food.

One remedy for infant constipation is prune juice! Just mix 1 ounce prune juice (doesn't have to be baby prune juice, you can use any kind as long as it's 100% juice) into a bottle of breast milk or formula, shake, and serve! You can also use pear or apple juice!

Giving the infant a 4oz bottle of water helps to loosen up the bowels. Depending on the age you can always give more water.

I found that giving my baby a small amount of prunes would usually help with the occasional constipation. You can mix it in with their cereal or it can be given to them on its own. If they are too young for this, a little bit of prune juice is just as effective.
