My 2 year old grandson is having either pain or very is uncomfortable. We think he may be somewhat constipated. He keeps saying he has to go poop but has passed very little. What he did pass is a very pale color. What do you think it may be and what can we do?

It is about my 2 years old daughter. She is afraid to potty, she holds it and she cries a lot when I take her to the toilet. The stool is very hard and to me it looks thicker than what I would think should come out of her. I give her prune concentrated daily ( lately increase to twice daily), she only drinks water and lots of it, fruits and veggies and lately I read not to give her peanut butter and milk or milk products. I help her with my hands pressing around her rectum. She always bleeds a little. I want to know what to do besides what I am doing. Or, am I doing something wrong?
