    I was thinking of an enema, but I cant find mine and I'm sure the applicator would be too big anyway. Not sure she would accept the process either. Any suggestions. She says it hurts.

    Always go natural first. Processed foods and dehydration cause constipation. Lots of raisins, melon, grapes, water, water, water. Juice, prunes, and more melon. Good luck!

    Limiting dairy helps a lot with constipation and hard stools. My daughter since she was very young has always had very hard stools and difficulty having a movement so our PCP suggested limiting her dairy intake and go from there. Since then I water down her milk and try to cut back on the cheese and yogurt and we have had a lot of improvements.
