My daughter is almost 2 1/2 yrs. Old but since she was about 1 yr. old she has had a problem with her bowel movement. Her stool is a pebbled greenish black color and sometimes hard and sometimes not. It seemed to be dry as well. But she did and still has trouble pushing it out because its a huge bowel altogether. She used to cry every time but now she's potty trained so its gotten a little easier for her now but still wont go for one day and the next day she's straining to push that I just put her in the bath water to make her comfortable. She has been to the doctor for it but all I was told to do was give her Miralax and mineral oil. I'm tired of not knowing the cause of this and tired of my baby crying everytime just to poop. I'm scared something is seriously wrong and we're letting it go to long. Please help!!!:confused:

I had a gastro-problem during my teenage years and the doctors prescribed all sorts of medicine that only made the problem worse. I quit taking the medicine and changed my diet to include a great deal of dark green, leafy vegetables and water. I only get outbreaks when I shift my diet. Maybe try seeing a dietician or natural doctor? I hope your daughter feels better.
