LO having trouble w/bowel movements

Marian - posted on 08/26/2012 ( no moms have responded yet )




My LO is having trouble having bowel movements. She is 9mnths old and has been to the dr. She is taking a stool softener and she has been restricted from starches until we can fix the problem.

We were also told to use a liquid suppository which worked that time but we continue to have the same problem. I am at my wits end. She is breastfed so I thought she shouldnt have this many problems.

She is not constipated but gets compacted and since it hurts she holds it and wont go which in turn just makes matters worse. Does anyone know of any home remedies I can try?

She eats fruit and veggies, drinks water and juice. It breaks my heart everytimeshe needs to go and it hurts her. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
