Since birth our daughter has had a bowel movement. We thought that it could be because she was LT&T but her ped. said she just has "Gastrointestinal Issues". She was put on special formula but she would still have problems from time to time. Once she turn 1 we switched her to milk and the issues started to increase. She developed a fisher on her bottom and her bowels were becoming much more harder. Her ped. switched her to 1% milk and only once a day (her bedtime sippy). She has also put her on milk of mag and is up to 1 tablespoon a day. Our daughter eats with no problem and we keep her from the foods that cause hard stools; peanut butter and bananas. She loves her fruits and veggies and just found an interest in rasians. She drinks only water OR juice. She has a bowel movement everyday. She will scream, cry, hold her breathe, and turn into a statue for almost 30 minutes. Once she passes the bowel, it is literally hard like a rock and lately now has shown more blood in her diaper (which I know is because of the fisher being irritated). When she goes through this, I just hold her help her and cry along with her.. I can't see my daughter in pain any longer!! I've done research on Pedatric Gastro. and I'm going to run them by her Ped. BUT any suggestions or feedback would be great!
