this has been going on for a week now. i try wiggling her legs and rubbing her belly. if it's out enough, i pull it out for her. if it's not, i just rub her belly and try to talk to her. nurse said karo syrup, but then doc said no because that's for babies under 6 months. doc said prune juice, green veggies and fruit but not banana or applesauce. i started that yesterday and this morning she had a hard time going again. after she finally goes, she's back to the happy, laughing baby she always is. i don't know what else to do for her. doc says to see a specialist cuz her hole might need to be stretched. honestly, i don't think that's the case. she's made bigger poops then these with no problems before. she was also just put on whole milk because she was refusing the formula and not gaining enough weight. she does love the milk and is drinking what she should be now. doc also said whole milk wouldn't have anything to do with this. any advice would be appreciated because it breaks my heart when she's in such pain and i can't do anything!
