You do not say whether her stools are hard or not but I presume that they are and that your daughter is very constipated.This seems to have started with the change over to regular cow's milk. Your daughter may benefit from drinking the new Parmalat 1 to 2 year follow-on milk instead. It is important for her to take plenty of fruit, extra fluid [water] and fibre every day as well.
