Thank you sooooooo much for all the suggestions. It all came to a head this weekend with her waking up at night crying and pushing but nothing coming out. It was soo upsetting to watch and not really know what to do. In the end I called up NHS direct - a helpline for any health concerns in the UK - but just as I was talking to a nurse about it and she was about to send us to the dr, my lovely little one finally managed to get a little poo out. It was rock solid, i could see why she had been struggling. as my hubby was changing her, she was screaming and then out came another 2 solid balls of poo and then she weed as well, all over her mat and my hubby!! ha ha!! about half an hour later, another solid ball of poo, I felt so sorry for her as i could really see how uncomfortable it must have been. About 2 hours later, she pooed again but this time it was so watery, it leaked out of everywhere!!!!! and then again before the end of the day and since then she has been pooing over and over, all watery thankfully so no pain, just a lot of mess on the bed, on her dad, on the carpet!!!!!!!!! Now the concern is whether she has diarrhoea!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyway, now I am staying with her for the next few weeks as we are off on holiday so will use the opportunity to ease her slowly into solids, just fruits or a few spoonfuls of cereal a day and a whole lot of fluid with each meal and me breastfeeding a lot in between.
Thanks a lot everyone.
