so im dealing with a new problem that i havent faced in my 4 years of being a mommy! usually i have the opposite issue with my kids, pooping 4-5 times a day.
my 12 month old was straining pretty hard to pass a bowel movement this morning and crying out of pain. i went to change her diaper and with all the pushing she hadn't passed it yet, but i looked and there was (TMI) some of it poking out, and it looked very large. she gave up and it went back in. now she's acting fine, but i know when she tries again she's going to be in pain.
im guessing i need to increase the fiber in her diet? i havent really changed anything, with the exception of not giving her a banana everyday but i always thought bananas had the constipating effect, when for her they made her poop a lot. i give her milk with her 3 main meals and water with her snacks, once in a while a sippy cup of watered down juice.
for now though, what kind of remedies can i give her to help her pass this large stool? prune juice i know.. anything else? TIA
