She has always had constipation since birth ive done karo but it upsets her belly and i dont know what else to do...
Please don't give your little one Miralax. My boy was constipated like your describing and it was awful, just awful to see him in such pain when he would pass. Have you had a Well-Baby check recently? Ask baby's doctor, or atleast leave message for nurse. If you are on W.I.C. they should be able to help you there.
For my boy I gave him water to drink (don't let baby get full from water and not eat though) I also gave him jarred prunes and applesause. I think I started at 6 months (never give babies peanut butter or nuts until after age 3,my boy is severely allergic to all nuts & some allergists believe its from introducing nuts to early) What helped so very much was Baby Massage (there are books at the library and I'm sure on-line) I learned a massage move to help him pass. It was called the "I love you" for baby is on back and you start with a light touch under ribs straight across (this is the I) then you do the I again but turn it into an L (so the tail on the L is going across bottem of baby's tummy, then you were the bottem of the I was make a U. I hope I'm not to confusing. This would help my boy. Baby massage was one of the greatest things we experienced together at that age. (He is 12 now and he'll still let me rub his feet) I hope I helped a little bit at least. Your baby should really see the doctor though to rule out anything, even like a food allergy. Have you only used formula? It could be something as simple as a change of formula. Also, I would take a bath with my boy and hold him so he could kick and move around alot. This also seemed to help. Best of luck. I actually signed on just to answer your question. I remember those days and miss them dearly. Cherish everyone for they do go by much to quickly. Take care.
