Add prune juice to formula to keep newborns regular
Zac of Baby Roadies on the benefits of Nature's Laxative:
When our newborn son Hank was having difficulties keeping everything moving downstairs (if you know what I mean) [oh, we KNOW what you mean, Zac. -- Ed.], our doctor recommended an ounce of prune juice mixed in with his formula once a day. Since then, we've been giving Hank his prune juice highball every night before bed, and every afternoon he gives us back a little present, steady as clockwork.
Rarely does he get constipated or get those creepy hard-and-dusty poops that some babies seem to get.
So as it turns out, old people were right all along.
Works when mixed with juice or smoothies for older kids, too.
