As your baby is 7 months old already, it's likely you would have started feeding her fruits and vegetables. For constipation, fruits and veggies work best as natural treatments. However, in case the baby is still more habitual to fluids, give her half a cup fruit juice every day. Juice of prunes, cherries, apples or pears are good options. Also, increase her daily water intake by ¼ cup extra. You need not make any other dietary changes or pause breastfeeding while the child is constipated.
