Fruit juice: Prune, apple, or pear juices contain sugars which are poorly absorbed, pass through the intestine unabsorbed, and hold water in the poop. Other juices are helpful because their sugars are better absorbed. A baby or toddler constipated may be helped by giving 2-4 ounces of one of these juice once a day and become fussy. If the baby is breast fed Mother should observe diet restrictions like 1.Avoiding spicy food,2.Taking plenty of oral fluids,3.Taking soft food,& .Fruit juices
