Constipation in a 3 month old
My grandson hasn`t had a BM in 5 days. He is breastfed, and was told this in normal. However, he isn`t gaining weight. We tried prune juice, apple juice, kero syrup with water. He pooped alittle, now 5 more days has passed. He was taken to the doctor, and he said my grandson my have an enlarge muscle in his stomach, he was 1 month premature. He had an altra sound done, not results as of yet.
Should my daughter just wait it out? or is this normal?
