Dear Mr XXXX

Prune juice and ghee will not cause harm to baby, but it is not recommended to give baby anything other than breast milk till 6 months of age.

Rest be assured there is no cause for concern.

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.

Take Care

my son is 5 weeks old he seems little constipated. he grunts and turns red when he poops. his poop is very little and hard. but he does it 2 or 3 times a day. also it's been 5 days since he only poops when he's not wearing diapers. is he really constipated or it's normal.

Hi
Dear Mr XXXX

Every baby have their own bowel frequency. If the child is exclusively breast feed and there is no distension of abdomen then there is no cause for concern, it could be just normal variation in bowel movement.

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.
