Is My Baby Constipated

My dd didn't have a bowel movement yesterday...and today she passed a small fingertip size turd. It was actually hard-like. It seemed like she pushed to get it out too. And lately she's been a little fussy. Any suggestions on what I can do??

Prunes and/or prune juice if you're sure she's constipated. My ds eats a lot of cereal and if it weren't' for prunes he'd be bound up for DAYS or WEEKS!!!

I´d ask how old is she and if she is bf or formula fed. If formula and she is too young for prune juice, try boiling 1 prune until soft and mix the formula with that water. In my case, DS doesn´t have a bm everyday, when he was exclusively bf after a couple months it was more like once every 2-3 or even 4 days, now he is 50%bf-50%formula and he goes once every 2nd day... but NEVER hard. I also heard that if you mix the formula with less water than needed, babies will constipate; not a__suming it is your case, but you might want to try using a bit more water than you usually do (if you do feed her formula).
