prunesThere’s a reason prunes have a reputation for promoting regularity: Prunes are high in sorbitol, a type of sugar alcohol purported to have a mild laxative effect.

If your baby is straining to poop and the stools are hard, try adding prunes to your feeding regimen.

For constipation, try hydrating and chopping a few organic prunes. Put them with whatever solid food you’re giving them. If you’re feeding broccoli and peas, add some prunes. That usually does it.

Because babies don’t have notions about whether such combinations are appetizing, they typically eat with relish because prunes are sweet.
