What can I give my 11 month old to help her poop? She has been trying to for the last 20 min and she just can't.

Unless she has a hard mass in her tummy that you can feel, or is screaming in pain, It is totally natural for her to take a while to poop. Kids dont learn to relax the muscles down there to allow stool to pass so it takes longer and is totally normal. Wouldn't hurt to give her a little prune juice, but it won't help the "Poop already in the shute." LOL

Prune juice, or pear juice. Pear juice is only found in the baby aisle by gerber! Peaches also help poop!
