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...

7 Year-old with Digestive problems....could It Be Celiac or Chron's?

I am the parent of 3. My oldest, a 7-year-old girl, has had gastrointestinal problems for about 3 years. Lots of pain varying in severity, and hard for her to describe. She always pointed to different locations. It happened most days, with a few little breaks, but mostly she had just chronic pain. Also, I journaled things but could never find a food or food group that caused the problem. After a year of this off-and-on pain, I knew things weren't normal. She went to an allergist, and tested negative for the major food allergies. (he...

Blood in Stool

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...
