What can you do about constipation?

If your baby shows signs of constipation, try these remedies:

  • Gently massage your baby’s tummy in a clockwise direction and move their legs in a bicycle motion
  • Boil and cool some water, and give your baby extra drinks between feeds
  • If you are using formula, double check that it’s being made according to instructions and the scoop is not being packed

If these don’t remedy the constipation in a day or so, check in with a GP or maternal health nurse for more advice.
