My 5 week old DD has been a bit consipated lately and I read about this brown sugar yesterday arvo, well finally tried it around 4pm and this morning at about 9.30am she did a poo. Dunno if it was the sugar that did the trick, but shes a lot happier as she also did another this arvo. It was a bit more runny this arvo. Good to know of a natural remedy for the future! Saves money on those chemist products!!

it may have been the sugar-it usually takes between 4 and 8 hrs for it to work but it does work as uve discovered! if u use it a few times every day it will help keep her regular.im glad u found some helpful advice without even having to ask-these forums can be super informative at times!

Me and Eve went for our first community heatlh nurse visit yesterday.  She also recommended the brown sugar in water or formula.  Eve has trouble getting her poos out sometimes but they aren't hard or anything just regular softies and as I call them 'spreadables'.  Gross I know Tounge1.gif
