Hello, my 10 month old baby girls has me a little worried. She is doing an unusual movement with her legs when she sits in her buggy or her highchair. shes clenching her bottom and releasing and I cant seem to stop her. Ive tried distraction, giving her toys etc it doesnt seem to work at all. She was constipated last month and has been doing it since. She still gets a little constipated so Im thinking, when she needs to poop shes stopping herself from going. But theres also times when she does it and she doesnt seem like she needs to go. So I think it could be a hbit now but Im just not sure Ive tried prune juice(which she really doesnt like) and duphalac from the chemist for the constipation but any other tips or ideas would be greatly appreciated, Thank you x

Have a look at this link. My daughter did this from about the age of 10 months. I got it checked out and it was diagnosed as a 'habit'.

Thanks so much for the help carben. I had a look at the link and it seems very similar to this behaviour/habit shes developed. I think Ill bring her to my GP anyway just to be sure. Just for reasurance. Thanks againsmile
