My daughter is 11mos old. Lately she has had periods where she seems to be impacted, and doesn't move her bowels for days. She strains to go but passes small amounts of stool or nothing at all. What is really concerning me is that she has a bulging in her rectum when she is straining to go. I have brought her to the dr and they say nothing is wrong with her. She is also in a lot of pain, and the first time it happened, around her rectum became really excoriated and sore until she finally had two large movements. The reason I don't consider her to be constipated is her stool was different sizes and consistencies. She had loose stool, small hard stool, and large stool all mixed together.
This time, I have given her a suppository and prunes, neither seems to help.
I am worried and the dr doesn't seem to think it's anything.
Does anyone have any ideas or advice?

My daughter was constipated from the beginning. I once called an ambulance because she was in such pain. She passed an Orange sized ball of poop while the ambulance was on the way. They were amazed that that had come out of her. I had her on a high fiber diet already. The doctor prescribed Miralax. It went into every bottle she took. She eventually was able to go on a more regular bases. She is now 8 and still gets constipated. From what they said on DOCTORS the other day. It does not matter how many times a person poops a week. The only thing that matters is the consistency of the BM. I hope this helps.

Do you have a restriction on age when it comes to a potential SO?
