  • Dont give her anymore dairy products increase her water intake big time for now. However you can get her to drink it. Get a special straw for just water, let her suck on ice, make Popsicles out of water with a berry in the middle as a treat or something. Increase her fiber intake. Try to get her to eat raisins or cut up some prunes into little pieces.  Prunes are actually really good. If she starts having diarrhea she still may be constipated the diarrhea is going around the hard stool (bm).Poor little girly I hope she goes soon.

  • I should of said "no more dairy products while she is constipated".
