Try letting her drink water, water will help soften the stool

How are you giving juices? You know my son will only drink it from a cup (with assistance!) Not a sippy cup. Try Karo syrup!

When my daughter is constipated I give her prunes. I boil them and then purée them. I will even add the water I used to boil them to a cup and let her drink it. Prunes, or any fruit that starts with a P works great!!!

Talk to your pediatrician. ☺️A stay at home moms job is never done. Yes i take care of the house but we both understand that I am not his slave. He's still responsible for picking up after himself. I don't give sugary things like this all the time. The pediatrician explained that the sugar pulls moisture into the intestines tonmake them go.

Miralax is great for constipated babies. 1 tsp per bottle per day or in her water or food

Try a nice warm bath , it might relax her enough so she will go. My little guy was like that when he was little and, as yucky as it was, he would relax enough in his baby bath and go. Worth a try anyway :) good luck !

Try a straw! My daughter started using straws around 6 months! Prune juice! Puréed prunes help and applesauce! My daughter had been constipated for two weeks on and off. Prune juice worked wonders!

If sweet peas don't do it for her then I recommend olive oil. I tried it with my daughter and it worked great

You can add a bit of mineral oil to her water. My daughter has the same problem as an infant and we mixed juice and water or did mineral oil and water. Also increase veggies and fruits but stay away from binding fruits like apples and bananas. Good luck!

Don't stop giving solids. Their bodies are still adjusting to digesting something other than BM or formula. If you stop and then start again it will be exactly the same outcome. Stay away from things that constipate and give more things that will help regulate them. P foods like pears, prunes, peas, peaches. Water and blueberries can also help. If it's really bad then you'll probably need to use a qtip with some vasaline less than a cm in their bum and massage around in a circle.

My LO is on whole milk now and constipated even worse than with regular food. I had to help her last night so she could get some comfort and not cry all night. You could also talk to your doctor about baby suppositories.

Try a suppository. They are safe to use. Will help get out what's stuck in there. Karo syrup, the dark kind is safe to give 1/4 tsp 3 times a day. My son doesn't mind it at all. Helps soften the stools.
