My daughter is 1 yr old. She has struggled with constipation issues in the past, but tonight was just absolutely horrific! She cried for a long time and just kept shaking so I held her and walked around with her with her knees pulled up as far to her chest as I could. She cried soo hard! :( I decided to check and see if she was done and maybe it was just bothering her being in her diaper but found the biggest, hardest poop stuck in her butt and her poor anus was just stuck open stretched to the max!!!!! :( I had to take a wipe and pull it out manually!! Then she fell asleep.
When she woke up from her nap she started crying and shaking again so I walked around with her again. I figured it was the same ordeal so I opened her diaper and found the same thing. I tried to grab it out but it was soooo stuck. I had to push on both her butt cheeks for it to pop out and we ended up with 4-5 inches of solid, hard poop. Like an adult!!!! I've been giving her prunes and juice occasionally but I think this is more serious than that.
Is this normal? Has your baby ever had this big of an issue with constipation? What more can I do other than prunes and such? Please help! She was in so much pain. :(
*ETA: I've contacted her Dr. again, who told me to give her less milk, more juice and more water. Prunes daily. Less rice, oatmeal, and cheerios, etc. Well, her BM issues are still going on. 4 inch long, hard poops- that I have to help her get out each time. My added question now is- would you bring her in for x-rays at this point? See if anything else is going on, something that could potentially be serious? I've considered demanding x-rays, but maybe there is something else I can try that one of you knows works great! Let me know, I'm desperate :(
