Teething can cause constipation but not because of the teething itself.

When a baby is teething they may refuse to drink and eat which can lead to constipation and dehydration.

You can relieve your baby's constipation by exercising their feet such as like pedaling a bicycle and massaging your baby's stomach.

You can also give your baby some apple juice or prune juice to help relieve the baby's constipation or if the baby is on solids you can feed the baby some applesauce or other fiber based foods.

The kind of apple juice that is good for constipation in babies is Mott's for Tots apple juice, Gerber Apple Juice and Parent's Choice Apple Juice.

To dilute apple juice for constipation in babies fill a baby bottle or sippy cup with half apple juice and half water.

Then shake the apple juice to mix it well and then let the baby drink the apple juice as normal.

The amount of apple juice that should be given to help your baby poop is at least 2 ounces of apple juice that is mixed with water twice a day.

Mott's for Tots apple juice is a good diluted apple juice that works great for babies to help them poop or you can dilute some regular apple juice as well.

After apple juice is given to the baby the baby should poop within 12 hours to 24 hours although some babies may poop sooner.

In some babies it may only take a few minutes to a few hours for them to poop after drinking apple juice.

Diluted apple juice is okay for babies to drink in small amounts if they are 6 months or under.

Babies 6 months of age and older can have more diluted apple juice and once they get to be over 1 year old then non diluted apple juice is okay for the toddler.

One-year-olds can drink juice, such as 100 percent orange or apple juice, but they should have no more than four ounces of juice in a day.

Diluting the juice with water will help prevent your baby from consuming too much sugar.

A more nutritional option for a baby who is eating solid foods is whole fruit.

When you buy juice that is labelled 'not from concentrate' it means that the juice has been pressed or squeezed.

This type of juice then goes through pasteurization to ensure it's safe for consumption and free from any pathogens.

This process also extends the shelf life of the drink.

Start with mostly water and a little juice.

As your child adjusts, you can gradually add a little less water and a little more juice if you want to, but continuing with diluted juice is fine, too.

Cutting the juice with water will also cut the calories, sugar, and acid found naturally in fruit juice.

Babies who are teething can experience constipation but not simply because of teething.

If your baby's gums are swollen and tender, gently rub or massage the gums with your finger, or give your teething baby a teething ring made of firm rubber to chew.

Make sure the teething ring is not frozen.

If the object is too hard, it can hurt your baby's gums.
