It is unusual for such a young little girl to have such a severe constipation problem. She may be drinking too much milk or the formula she is on is not agreeing with her.She must not have cheese of any kind but especially hard cheese. She must have lots of fruit, water,fruit juice and roughage/fibre in her diet. She can have the Duphalac daily for the next 14 days, by which time she should be a lot better,if her diet is correct.If she is not better after this time she should be seen again by your paediatrician. It may be necessary to make sure that she does not have a condition called 'Hirschsprungs Disease' as her constipation seems to be severe. Ask the paediatrician about this.
