    Give your baby ORS liquid, this will help your baby to get relief from constipation.

    Hi factormomof03,

    I am so sorry that you babies are going through this. Are they feeling any better? This article on babies and constipation has a couple of tips that you might try (in addition to those that you already mentioned doing) to ease their discomfort. If they are still constipated to the point of pain after you have exhausted all of these options, it may be a good idea to push your pediatrician to look for some underlying cause. Please let us know how they are doing!

    Best wishes,
