How bad is it? Warm bath, gentle pressure on the lower abdomen in an almost stroking downwards motion while on the toilet, water. I've even heard stimulating the anal area with a wipe can help- like one would with baby kittens. Too much fruit can give her the runs, you don't want that next!

I know its a very common response, but lots of liquids, obviously other then milk, we just recentlly had to de-block my son, and we amped up his water intake, and gave him an apple prune drink. And we also gave him, lots of fruit sauces, anything liquidy, hoping it would de-bind him and it worked!
