Apple juice is what you give a baby who has diarrhea, so I'd definitely avoid giving it to her when she's constipated, it's probably making it worse. Does she like purees? Mashed-up pears are very effective. For my son, it was all about what NOT to give him as well as what to give him. When he was having trouble going, I avoided rice cereal and bananas, and gave him lots of pureed prunes and pears.

Try cutting back on solids and only offer those that are higher in fiber.

Rub her belly...I also heard that if you cover the tip of a rectal themometer with vasiline and stick it in her rectom that it may help break it up and make it easier for her to go. I do not know if it works I didnt hear it until my son was a toddler and if I tried to do that to him now he would hate me lol
