    Hi there, i was under the impression that you cant give newborns anything but breast milk or formula. I don't think their stomachs can handle anything else. I would give someone a call before doing anything.

    hey hun...i wouldnt give prune juice or anything besides formula or WATER u can give ur lil onbe cooled boiled water (boil it in a pot for 10mins) it works wonders! also there's a formula on the market called NOVOLAC for constipation....i used that becoz DS got really bad constipation after putting him on formula, it helps by retaining the water in their bowels so the poo's are soft and easy to pass, wat fomrula are u using? i used S26 first which was horrid, also tried Hienz, Karicare (plain) and a cpl others (i cant think of names). After i got his poo's under control with NOVOLAC (he thru 2 whole tins) i then changed to KARICARE GOLD thats been really good, hasnt had trouble pooing ever since! good luck hun any more Q feel free to ask

    my DD is breastfed, but apparently the Heinz Nurture is good (dont use nurture gold if there is wind and constipation problems- according to their helpline) a mother in my mothers group did a whole stack of research into formula - and its made close to home! NZ!

    Also i wouldnt give juice!, apparently warm boiled water is good to get the bowels working, including for adults! drink up!!! HTH!

    My sister was told to put some brown sugar in my niece's bottles to help constipation.

    when zoe was that young i gave her prune juice mixed with water... she loved it... and didn't have any problems... she was constipated for a while, so i tried everything, the brown sugar and water was recommended by the paed. when i saw him... i certainly don't think it's going to kill the bub. but i diluted it so it was very watery and just 20ml of prune juice to 100ml of water or something like that.

    Please talk to a pharmacist or health professional before giving your newborn anything other than bm or formula.
