my 14 month old was 6 weeks early at birth, and has always had problems(she pushes so hard that she stiffens her body and gets out long and massive rock hard movements. i know it hurts her but all i can do is help her get it out...) with her bowl movements. I am worried that she is going to have these problems her whole life, and want to know of a way to help her. We have tried prunes, apples, and many other foods that should help her but nothing works for more than a few days, and i hate giving her a laxitive to make her go? could the digestion problems be stemming from her prematurity or is this normal for children her age?
