I think my DD is constipated. For the past week she's only had a few dry, hard, dark turds. Last night she woke up 5 times screaming and I think it's because she's constipated. Anyway, here are my questions, I'm hoping someone can shed some light...
1) She has never had any juice, should I try that? If so, should I buy the little juice packs in the baby aisle?
2) Now that shes on solids, I've read they should also have some water to prevent constipation. She has not yet figured out how to drink from a straw cup. Should I give her water and/or juice in a bottle?
3) How long is too long to go with hard dark turds? When should we consider taking her to the doctor?
4) Are there any other remedies I should be trying? Today I asked the nanny to feed her Gerber jarred prunes to see if that will help.
