    Rubie is constipated. She hasn't had a poo for nearly 4 days. She has been screaming and straining for nearly 5 hours. I'm in tears myself watching her in so much pain. I've tried:

    Freshly sqeezed orange juice
    Bath
    Baby massage
    Cycling motion with legs
    Vaseline on bum

    None have worked

    She is taking a tiny amount of milk at a time and throwing it all back up because she is in such a state. I really don't know what to do. She's having a cat nap so I've quickly sneaked on here, but she's only been down 5 mins and is already stirring so I'm in for another screaming session soon no doubt. Please someone help me to make this poo happen for her :( :( :(

    I tryed prune juice with jamie and it worked realy well, try a spoonful diluted half with boiled water. I know its horrible seeing them in pain, jamie was badly constipated a few weeks back and it was not nice seeing him in so much pain!

    Hope she poops soon! :?

    have heard that a lil brown sugar disolved in bolied water ( cooled obviously) helps with constipation, other than whats already been recomended ( juice etc)

    YAY, Rubie did a big poo this morning!!!

    Surprisingly she didn't have me up all night. She dropped off about 9pm and woke at midnight, 3am, 7:30am and 10:30am for feeds. She is still sleeping now!!

    Must have worn herself out crying bless her :D

    Thanks for your suggestions
