Baby Has Hard Bowel Movements

I have a happy one year old daughter who has always had problems with harder than normal bowel movements. When she was just a few months old we had to put her on sorbital(sugar water). I hated having to do this and started feeding her prunes and other foods that I thought would help. She's now drinking milk and it's gotten worse. She's not constipated she actually goes 4-5 times a day, but it's in rabbit pellet form. I hate to be so blunt, but I'm hoping that someone has some ideas on how to cure this without over-the-counter meds. I...

14-Month-old Is Constipated

My 14-month-old son is constipated a few times a week. I have been in contact a few times with the pediatrician's office and am doing everything I can. This started when he was switched over from formula to whole milk. Also, he does not drink much water. I am always forcing it on him, but he won't drink much. I give him prunes or blueberries to eat, make his baby cereal with prune juice, give him whole grain foods, etc. I also water down his milk and occasionally put Karo syrup in his milk. He still has problems with constipation. ...

Diarrhea - What to Do

Hi- My daughter is 10 months old and has diarrhea ever since we were at the doctors office for her check-up a week and a half ago. She did not receive any vaccines however, she did receive her first dose of the flu shot. She has no other signs of being sick, ie; no fever, still eating well and over all good spirits. I am not sure what to do. She is eating table food in addition to being breast fed four times a day. Any suggestions about what to do would be great. Thank you!!

Daughter with Green Stool

Okay, I am not trying to be gross or too graphic here, but I have a question about my daughter's stool. She is 2 1/2 and has had green stool for about 3 days now. It is green like Shreck green. It has been softer than normal. It isn't the entire bowel movement that is green, just about half of it. It doesn't smell any worse than normal and she hasn't been complaining of a tummy ache until tonight. Her belly ache lasted for about 10 minutes and got better after some crackers and sprite and lots of TLC. We haven't changed her diet or...

Blood in Stool

Hi Mommas! =) We are very concerned about my 10 year old niece, Lia. Lia was diagnosed with type 1 juvenile diabetes when she was 7. I'm telling you this because diabetes sometimes complicates other health issues and we're not sure if this is related. About 2 weeks ago she told my sister (her mother) that she had some blood in her poop. My sister (figuring it was a fissure or something) told her that sometimes that happens when our stool is really hard, etc. Nothing more was said about it until just the other day when Lia told my...
