My 19 months old daughter weighs 7 kg and is 2.3 feet tall. She has been suffering from constipation since we started giving her solid food, that is since the seventh month. She cries while passing stool, and her anus becomes red after she passes stool for around two or three times a day. Our doctor suggested to skip milk and milk cereals and to continue mother's milk. Also, she drinks less water. He prescribed Anovate cream and Eva Q syrup, which we were giving her from the past three months, but did not see any improvement. Recently, the doctor changed the medicine to Muout powder, two times a day. How many months are we supposed to continue this? When will my daughter be fine? What should be her diet? Can we give milk with honey? Please help.
