Of importance is that your daughter has been constipated fairly recently. She was fine while being breastfed. Is she drinking too much milk. She only needs 2 cups a day of milk now.She must not eat any cheese. She should drink lots of water and can have dilute fruit juice once a day.She needs lots of fruit in her diet and this is the best time of the year for fruit. She should also have a fibre rich diet, brown bread and Weetbix. I know that she won't eat adult cereals but try Weetbix. Pour a small amount of hot water over the Weetbix to soften it first and then some milk and a little sugar. If she does need a stool softener you can give her a 2 week course of Duphalac Liquid 5ml twice day for 14 days.
