My little girl is 3 and 1/2, and has been sitting on the potty once every 10 minutes since she got home from pre-school. I know she's been trying to avoid pooping since last night, because when I asked her, she said, "it hurts". I feel so bad for her, and in the past I've tried things like suppositories, but they never worked. I know she has to go, and I know she's constipated, but I don't know how to help her, and I'm afraid she'll keep avoiding it because of the pain and then we'll really have a problem. I haven't given her any "binding" foods in the past 48 hours, and she loves fruit so she's been eating that a lot. I feel like I'm out of ideas. Suggestions? Thanks!

I know there's no cure for colicy babies but is there something to help them?
