I would talk to the pediatrician, before taking medical advice from strangers online. Hope it works out for you

Hi Janet,

The basics to start with would be more fluids, I am presuming she is not on any solids yet as she is only three months? If that doesnt work you can try the following individually and see how it goes:

- Give the baby some water
- Add brown sugar to her bottle
- Use an qtip with vaseling on and VERY gently insert just the tip into her bum

It can be a VERY slow process so keep at it but try get it under control as soon as possible. If she starts straining she will develop negative emotions around pooing and not want to do it- basically starting a vicious circle of constipation. We went down this road with my baby boy and it was awful!
