  • Is she actually trying to poop, or has she just *not* pooped? My daughter can go two days without pooping, and then have a day where she poops three or four times. It's perfectly normal. Maybe she just doesn't have to poo?

  • Have you spoken with her Dr. about his issue? If not, I think you should. If you formula feed then it may be the iron in the formula keeping her constipated. My best advice is talk to her dr. ASAP! Good luck to you and your little one!

  • My son has really bad constipation He'll scream because it bothers him. So we gave him a suppository. they have them for kids with no medicine in them.and we just cut the tip of it off and held it there with in minutes he had gone. and was fine and happy. Also the hospital told us to take the thermometer and act like we were going to take his temp and wiggle it just a little to loosen everything up.

  • Hi. I know you are going to think that Im crazy, but try just a little bit of Milk of Magnesia. My little girl was always constipsted and I tried everything just like you did. I finally decided to try a little bit of Milk of Magnesia and by the next morning she was going.
