My daughter has been constipated, and when she poops it's usually one really hard ball. Sometimes it's really big :( she's 9 months eats solid and baby food. She eats a good amount of fruits. We've tried gripe water. What kind of foods or anything else can I give her to help?

I would say give prunes on regular basis and you can give her suppository too

Definitely prunes or diluted prune juice daily. It was the only way to keep my daughter regular until about a year and a half

Any of the pit fruit (prunes, peaches, apricots, plums, etc). My dd loves apricots. I just buy dehydrated, then rehydrate and purée as needed Avoid BRAT foods (bananas, rice, applesauce, toast)

Orange juice? That's what I was told to use for my son anyways. By my aunt who is also a nurse. It works tho.

I use prunes! Be sure not to give her too much because she could get upset stomach then!

Enfamil has a new formula called Reguline that helps with constipation. It works wonders, call them for a sample.
