Why Is My Infant Constipated?

My 2 month old baby goes 2 weeks without pooping, I have tried prune juice, water, apple juice, tummy massage, but nothing worked. To make her poop, I have to use a medicine dropper to insert warm water into her rectum, the water will come out with fesses. And the stools are soft and yellow. I don t want her to get dependent to that method. Please help me, what should I do.

Hi Dear
welcome to the HCM,
Whenever it goes a week with passing the stool one has to use glycerine rectal suppository consequently for three days.
Some honey mixed with water to be tried.
But history is of soft stool even after one week of stay then the child to be investigated.( especially for thyroid, hersprung disease etc)
Please contact your pediatrician for further workup
