  • No's a botulism risk. Give her LOTS of fluids and cut the solids for the rest of the day at least.

  • 1)Try a rectal thermometer to see if that can get things going.
    2) a little bit of diluted apple or prune juice. Like 1-2 oz
    3)a gentle belly massage or bicycling the legs and warm bath may help alone or even along with one of the above

  • Probiotic. Not the crappy yogurt or cheese that supposedly contain it, but the real stuff, gelcaps filled with powder that need to be kept refrigerated. Mix the powder into something she drinks or eats. I did it, with doctors blessings (and kudos for not doing anything dumb like juice, etc at 1-2 months old) every day for pretty much my son's first year of life - had to or he wouldn't poop. It helps keep the intestines healthy and working properly. Helps unstop anyone who's stopped up, helps stop up anyone with diarrhea.

  • You can always try a suppository, I think they have small ones, or you can cut it in half. I had to give it to my son. Just be ready for poop!!

  • I'd probably use a suppository on her. Poor baby. :(
