My 16 month old struggles to do #2 they are like little hard pieces Of pebbles and sometimes have blood in it. He barely wants to drink water not to mention prune juice or prune. I try fiber powder in his milk bottle 3x a day. Fiber cereal, fiber rich food, oatmeal nothing works. How could I get him to drink more water? I even put sugar in it & nothing Any suggestion?

It doesn't sound like he needs more fiber or prune juice, but instead more water. don't put sugar in it, b/c then he will associate it with being sweet and you won't be able to get him to drink plain water. Don't give him other drink options - juice or whatever - just milk and water. He'll eventually drink it.
