thank you asking HCM
with regards to baby bowel movement , it is different from adults.
I would kindly ask you how many times per day defecate your baby?
with regards to home remedies to avoid constipation I would recommend to use plenty of water more than 3 L per day, eat fruits and vegetables reached in fibers.
wishing you all the best
