Child has difficulty passing stools, had umbilical hernia. What is wrong?

I have a seven month old that was premature. Her whole little life it seems she had had a hard time digesting and passing stool . The first thing I noticed was pain when popping witch I thought was strange because the poop was not solid. Then came the umbilical hernia about an inch long. Now its gone but I have to give her apple juice every day to get jet to poppy I stopped drinking milk and a bunch of other foods they said could hurt her. Now its time to inter food and I can t feed her more then once a day or she is in so much pain what is wrong

Thank you for your query.
Give her lots of fluid and fruit juices.
Your feeding habits have nothing to do with your child's bowel habits.
Breast fed child will always have semisolid to liquid stools.Start weaning her properly.Give her antispasmodic drops for pain.
Hope this answers your query.
If you have any other queries kindly direct them to me.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
