My six month old girl is severely constipated. I have been to the pead. twice (I went yesterday) and he has given me a few laxatives to try. I believe she is holding on as it hurts.
The problem I have is that she needs more fluid, she is currently breastfed and on two solids per day, but she refuses ANY fluids other than breast milk. The pead. cannot give us any advice on how to get fluid into her so I was hoping you could.
I have tried: bottles, syringe, normal drinking cup, sippy cup (all different types), and medicine cups. I have tried water and juice and she refuses everything. Gets actually quite distressed when tasting other fluid and even sometimes but putting her mouth on the vessel I am using to get fluid into her.
Any advice (or a magic wand) would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance
