Constipation is one of the most common problems in infants. It is defined as hard stools that are difficult to pass. While it can be normal for babies to not stool every day, pellet-like bowel movements and pain with stooling can be a sign of constipation. Prune juice is commonly used as a natural laxative in infants. Depending on the severity of the constipation, prune juice works better for some babies than others.

How Much Prune Juice Should You Give?

For infants greater than six months old, you can give 2-3 ounces of prune juice
