Hi,

Thank you for consulting in here. I think your kid is having habitual constipation. I have certain questions and suggestions for you.

Questions:
1. Did your kid pass motion or meconium on day one of life?
2. Since how long is the kid constipated?
3. Does the kid have any bleeding along with hard stools?
4. How much milk does the kid consume per day?
5. Does the kid eat fruits and vegetables (fiber diet) appropriately?
