Customer Question

I gave my 5 and a half month is about a half teaspoonful of watery psyllium husk and water for constipation. I am frantic now as I have learned that it Isco side red a choking hazard as it expand in the throat and stomach. This was 3 and a half hours ago. He did have a full diaper soon after the husk, has had 5 ounces of breastmik, and seems fine. Do I have something to worry about? Should I keep him up now or let him nap?

It is not likely problems will occur after 3 .5 hours.

I would not worry about that.

I would use what for constipation, and a baby suppository.

Also, call the pediatrician about the problem now.
