  • ask her pediatrician. they might want to do an x-ray or whatever they might do to check for hair blocking her intestinal tract if an x-ray can't detect hair. good luck.

  • Have you changed her diet at all? Have you tried giving her like 2 ounces of diluted apple juice? Is her tummy hard like a rock? Does she seem to be eating well?

  • it could or it could be something to do with her diet or digestive system. Call the doc to be sure, they may want to give her a laxative to make sure it comes out

  • I have tried juice i have tried supositories ( i dont think i spelled that right) I have not changed my diet at all i have been drinking more water and juice in hopes it will help her. her tummy does seem harder than usual i have taken her to the doc and he said its normaly for babies not to poop for days but i dont think that is so its been weeks not just days and what goes in must come out!
