can some one please tell me why my 1 and a half year old has npt done a poo in 5 days.

me and her dad took her to see the doctor last night and is all they have told us to do is give her fruit and veg and foods which have fiber in them.

after we had seen the doctor we went to get her some bananna's and cerial which has fiber in it but she will not eat her cerial she will only eat her bananna's and when she does go for a poo her poo is so hard she finds it hard to get her poo out and then we have to help her with it! sorry for all the gross info gross info but would like to know what else to try?

any help would be a apreciated.

many thanks

I wouldn't give her bananas. Bananas can constipate. Try pears and/or prunes. Are you nursing? If so, I'd continue to nurse her often too..
