I have a five month old baby who has never been able to poo well. Perhaps once a week she can successfully poo on her own, but the rest of the time, she struggles and cries, and screams.
We have taken her once to the emergency room, and we bring it up at the doctor's office, but no one has helped.
We have done everything the doctors have suggested - she gets prune juice, karo syrup, gerber prunes, "gentle, easy to digest" formula, glycerine suppositories for when it's really bad etc.
It is not that she is, nor has ever been constipated - she poos daily, a good thin consistency - but she has very serious painful trouble getting it out. I am afraid there might be somthing wrong with her muscles etc.
Please help.
