10 month old permanently constipated

I'll just start by confirming I'm not the poo troll grin
Since we started weaning (baby led) at 6 months ds has been constantly just doing tiny hard poos (that stink) the first couple of weeks he seemed in pain but now we don't even really notice him going
He has plenty of water, loads of fruit, veg with at least one meal a day.

Any suggestions?

My DD is the same except she won't eat fruit or a lot else really hmmshe was on lactulose for a long time and now we try and get about 1/3 of an Ella's kitchen prune pouch into her every few days which is helping massively!

I'd go to the doctor. My friend's DD doesn't have a straight end to her bowel and still has problems with constipation at age 9.

I would definitely go to the doctor. Our son was constipated for 3 days when he was 14 months and the doctor told us it can get very bad if left untreated as the bowel is a muscle that needs to be exercised or it will become sluggish and stretched

Thanks all, wish me look getting an appointment with the gp!
To clarify though he does go (twice) everyday, it's just rabbit pellet like

Thanks Miaow- since becoming parents it would seem about 25% of our conversations are about poo!
