Such little babies usually do not suffer from habitual constipation, rather acute episodes of constipation. If this is the case, you may irritate the baby's anus with your small finger soaked in oil or any lubricant ointment. Most often, such problems stem from tight anal muscles. If this doesn't help, there are conventional med. suppositories that may help in acute conditions.
If the problem persists, Chinese medicine may help by herbs or acu-massage. This acu-massage may be performed by the parents, after the practitioner marks out the points on the baby's skin.
