Flaxseed for Baby Constipation: Flax Seed for Infants

Many parents wonder if flaxseed or the oil should be given to constipated infants. Flax seed is more nutritious than flaxseed oil because it contains protein, vitamins, minerals, lignans and fiber. Flaxseed oil contains no fiber and very little lignan. Some people prefer flax oil for its omega-3 fatty acids and not having to grind the seeds. For constipation relief and dietary fiber, use flax seeds and not the oil.
