My daughter is only 3 months old and she is having trouble with constipation. She goes everyday but it is rock hard and has literally caused anal tears. There also seem to be small bumps around the anus. I thought they were hemorroids but the dr said she is too young so I have no idea what they are. I have tried water and prune juice but they do not soften her stool. The only thing that seems to work is milk of magnesia but we have to give it to her everyday in order for it to be affective and I do not want to have to do that. Also, even now that we have gotten it soft, she screams in pain once she has gone as if something else is still hurting her. I have taken her into the pediatrician and I am taking her to a pediatric surgeon on weds to investigate this further but I was wondering if anyone else has been through this and has any advise. Thanks
I wish we had answers, as my grandson was exactly the same way and now that he is 2 1/2 it has gotten better, but he still goes through this sometimes. Now my daughter has a baby girl only 3 weeks old and she is having the same exact problems as her brother and your daughter...Exactly the same symptoms! We have not found any doctors as of yet to help them with this...to make them more comfortable...or to solve why it happens so they don't have to suffer. I would very much like for you to post something about what you find, especailly if you find answers.
