yes i also have experienced that with my 1 yr. old son...he also cries whenever he poops..well, i just let him eat some vegetables and sometimes i would let him drink nesvita because i know it's filled with fibers which is good for those who are suffering from constipation...but if these remedies are still not effective i use suppository because it only takes 5 mins. and then the feces will come out...it's because the suppository dissolves the hard stool which is why it comes out as soft...

Hi! Have your baby drink plenty of water so s/he won't have a hard time trying to poop. It's the best and natural way to keep them hydrated esp that they only consume milk

Encourage your baby to drink lots of fluids. Eating ripe papaya may also help as papaya helps loosen stool.

1. Consult your pedia doctor, maybe you have to change her milk 2. buy suppository - helps her to poo easier 3. put vaseline gel around her rectum - she must be crying coz her stools making her rectum to tear. 4. does she eat apple? don't let her eat the skin -- I think I read it somewhere that it makes stool hard --not sure though 5. drink lots of water and eat vegetables
