problems with pooping

My 6 month old screams like she is in pain when she is pooping. Her stools are not hard and she has no rash. The doctor did not seem to concerned but I can't take it anymore. This can't be normal. Any suggestions?

  • Get her colon's checked. She may have some sort of block, hemroids (spell check) or even have some sort of cyst on her colon.

  • I'd suggest giving her may be an onces to 2 onces of water a day that you use to make her reg milk bottels with
    if you breast feed then get some botteled baby water it should help

  • Besides the screaming, everything else seems normal in the bowel movement department? How long has this been going on? What is her diet? Have there been any recent changes to her diet?

  • It has been going on for a while now. Everything is good with her bowls. When she was first born she would only have a bowel movement every 3 days but now since we started feeding her solids she has 2-3 a day. We just started feeding solids on a normal basis but thats the only big change. She was screaming before we started solids.

  • Tonight she was having a bowel movement and there is a hard spot on her anus and afterwards she was bleeding just a little bit
