how can i make it better?

My son hasn't been able to poop right. He does these little balls which by the way smell extremely bad. Yes i know poop doesn't smell good but this one smells worse. This has been going on for 2 months. i figured maybe i should give him more liquids but its not helping. Today he got a little cut from trying to push. He is 15 months old and i thought suppositories but the box say 2yrs and older. How can i help my little guy?

  • it could be the food that he is eating... but you could try giving him apple juice to help soften them too.

  • My kids both had that problem as babies and it was ALL because of formula and rice cereal. At his age he can drink some diluted apple juice. One part water, one part apple juice. Examine his diet. Cut out whatever is causing the constiparion.
