Prune Immune!!

The results are in, and my experimental baby colonic treatment (featured here) of pureed whole prunes and rolled oats was not a success. Although Piper was not constipated to begin with, I figured there would be a little more diaper action than there was, which was pretty much nothing out of the ordinary.  I'm unsure if this is because prunes don't work their magic unless a person is log-jammed or because Piper is just not affected.  I would be interested to hear if this method works for your infant, constipated or not.  I'll be awaiting your comments!


  1. We use avocado to get my daughters booty working. It seems that the two things that work for her are pear juice and avocados. I'm no expert but I think that the oils in the avocados kind of lube the intestinal tract and make it easier for her to go and good hydration keeps her bm's soft.

  2. Good post, Kalise! Good info for any mom out there to know!
