As you know, this is a very common problem. You need to be sure that your daughter has sufficient fluids, fibre and fruit in her diet . This is often the answer to problems with constipation. You may need to reduce the amount of milk in her diet if she is drinking a lot of milk every day.Read more about constipation on this Forum.
