  1. Hi, good evening, don't worry I'll post tomorrow. My baby had that problem too and I was sent something that once it's inserted just a little in baby's anus and pressed, the liquid goes in and poop just pours out almost immediately it looks like what we call ukebe in Nigeria, but very tiny compares to the traditional pump. It was extremely effective and worked in seconds. I couldn't get it here in Abuja though. It looks like these traditional pumps used to make babies poop but this one's were very very tiny for babies bum. I'll try and find the name so you check in pharmacies around you.

  2. I think they are called suppositories. Ask your pharmacy please. That was a llife saver for me cos there was a time I took chairman to the hospital, he didn't poop for about 10 days oh. Was around your baby's age then. I finished the pack of six and was getting worried that my baby will become addicted but thank God after that he started passing stool easily on his own and I didn't have to continue inserting.

    1. Ah, Anty suppositories are not good for babies oh, using it once in a while is ok but not constantly cod it weakens the anal sphincter ie the bum bum, my son had constipation for s long while. Check that the iron level of what baby is eating is not too much . Increase fruits and vegetables. Talk with your pharmacist

  3. Hello Poster. You are right aunty Eya, child/baby suppositories can be purchased at the pharmacy for constipated babies. It works almost immediately but if the baby is VERY constipated it might tave about 5-10mins to soften a little then it all comes out.

    There is a natural way that worked for my babies. Squeeze out the juice of a fresh orange and give it to the baby to drink with the peeps that comes with the juice. Do this 3 times a day however use/squeeze a fresh orange each time you want to gove the baby. This will help the baby go naturally.
