Hi Doctor,
Last week my daughter was constipated for about 4/5 days - she did manage to have a bowell movement but it was tiny balls. I gave her more fruit than usual and before i could give her the suppository you suggested on Friday her tummy worked and the constituency was much better. But then her tummy worked 4 times on Sat and 4 times yesterday - and it is very foul smelling. She is fine you think it could just be that all that was blocked in was coming out? She has a bottom tooth in its case..could it be that ?

You are correct,it was simply the effect of the constipated stool that resulted in the remaining loose stool coming out. This does not have anything to do with teething unless she was given a medicine for pain containing codeine such as Stopayne which may cause constipation.
