    When is the point to be concerned?

    Evie last poo'd on Sunday.

    She will usually go every day but sometimes will miss a day.

    She has been a little fussy and keeps farting.

    What foods should I give?

    Prunes/prune-juice works great for us! I think 3 days is too soon to be overly concerned, but I would offer things to help her! :hugs:

    Ruby has gone this long too. I try and get her to drink more water but she really doesn't like to drink a lot. I've switched her to all wholemeal breads, rice etc too and tried to limit the bananas she has as they can be a culprit!

    Ruby won't eat prunes or drink juice of any form so I made some biscuits using prune puree and she ate loads :)

    i was advised to give my daughter orange juice when she had this problem and was a few weeks old now she is bigger is give her segments off orange/satsuma she loves eating them and it usually relieves the nappy issues.

    hope your childs problems resolves itself quickly.

    Sam suffers and I was told liquid is the key as no matter how much fruit and veg they eat if the body isnt hydrated then it wont work. I switched to juice rather than water which helps but other than that didnt change anything. its horrible to see them uncomfortable isnt it - big hugs

    100g plain flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    100g ground almonds
    3 tablespoons of prune puree (I just blended tinned prunes with a drizzle of honey - the original recipe calls for sugar free jam but it was fine with prune puree!)
    100g butter
    1 beaten egg
    50g raisins

    Cream the prune puree with the butter, then add the beaten egg
    Add the raisins
    Add the flour, baking powder and almonds
    Spoon out blobs onto a greased baking tray (it'll be too sticky to roll out) and bake for about 15-18 mins.

    - I'm not sure if these helped R's constipation or not but it made me feel better to know she had eaten something which might help!
