breastfed baby with constipation

My daughter is 8 months, and having a bowel movement once every 4 to 5 days. She is only taking breastmilk whenever she wants and nurses regularly. She was regularly going once per day, but in the last month started changing her pattern. She doesn't experience any pain and does not strain or make any attempt for a movement but does pass gas throughout the day. My own movements are regular and have not changed. She is very strong, has started sitting, and all other things are normal and she has had no vaccinations. Any thoughts?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
have you changed your diet during the last one month or are you on medication?

if you are on normal diet and there is nothing wrong with you,

give one dose of BRYONIA 30C everyday for 3 or 4 days.

come back after 4 days if there is no improvement.

She was a home birth and I have never taken any medicaion that is not homeopathic or ayurvedic. I am taking one ayurvedic med that is high in ginger, but shouldn't make a problem and is for general strength. I am a vegetarian on a healthy diet with no problems.

Should medicine be given to the baby directly or through me?

ginger can cause constipation.

anything you eat, reflects on the health of your child who is breast feeding.

bryonia 30c can be given directly one drop on the tongue or on a spoon full of water and sipped up.
