Ok so my daughter doesn't have just normal poop, its usually super soft or in most cases she wont go for two or three days then when she does she cries the whole time. I cannot get her to eat fruits and veggies :( and on top of that my mother in law gave me activia to give her and that didn't even work. I am a first time mama and hopefully I can get some help or ideas as to what has worked for other mommies I would like to not have to rush to the er if nessassary, but if it is needed I will. I am very concerned and worried any advice or tips would help a lot thanks in advance!

my son gets this way a lot hes older now but he had this when he was a baby to so we used Fiber bars they have a brownie one that my son loves as does my 1 year old girl,, she can eat one or two a day and fiber makes your poop soft,, and you can use over the counter miralax you can put it in her juice while shes not looking it tells you how much to use we used a teaspoon at age two and at first he had loose stool and after a few days of using it it was normal when you can stop it and make sure she eats lots of fiber its the protin that binds her the mirlax any one can use its just how much to use to the age you r and how much will it take to clean her out so again make fiber your friend lol the bars r fast and easy cause kids at that age r picky and some dont want to eat cause it hurts the more you eat the more poop you get also they have fiber powder you put in there drink that works to but dont make a big deal about using them to the kid hope i helped some ,,,, ps dont read to much into the side efects on the miralax it does the job and you dont have to use it for years ,,, cause once she gets cleaned out you make she she has her fiber by by

Maybe instead of giving her the shakes you can also try apples , brown rice, avacados, and even popcorn. All of those are pack with fiber. :) Maybe if this continues, I would get her check out by the doctor, maybe something she eats is not agreeing with her body.

I've never had this problem but I know they sell pediasure with fiber in it. My son loves pediasure - they taste like milkshakes. Maybe give your daughter one after dinner every day to help increase her fiber? They are expensive though but it might help her stay regular.
