Natural ways to help digestion?

Our little one is 11 months old.  She was born 3 months premature and has always had a difficult time with digestion, even when she was being exclusively breastfed. Right now we are only feeding her a couple times a day easy to digest purees and breastfeeding a lot.  


Here's what we are currently doing:

Drinking water

At times prune juice 

Takes probiotic, infant dha fish oil, and organic coconut oil

Tummy massage

Warm bath

Peddling legs

Tummy time 


It can be a few days between bm's, although I know that can be normal for some; she becomes uncomfortable, bloated, and her tummy feels hard.   I am trying to stay away from miralax and glycerine shaves because I would like to avoid doing long-term damage.  Any suggestions?
