Prune Juice For Constipation
My 17 months old son sometimes has constipation.
How much apple prune juice for constipation should I give to my 17 months son? And for how many days?
Trying apple or prune juice for constipation is a good and simple way to try to deal with the problem of toddler constipation.
Apple juice will work for some children while prune juice works better for other children. Even a combination of the two, like you seem to suggest, could work well.
Since your son is quite young, I would start with only a tablespoon of juice at a time (maybe 2-3 times per day). You can mix the juice with a little water to dilute it if you prefer.
Be sure to use only juices that have no added sugars in them.
Continue the juice for 2-3 days to see if it will do the job. If the constipation is not relieved by then, I would suggest you try something else.
Not every natural remedy works for every child. Finding what works for your little boy may take a little trial and error on your part.
Remember to encourage him to drink more water throughout the day as that usually helps most people.
