Hi All,

Havent had a problem with this before.... DD (18 mths) hasnt pooped for 3 days now. Do i need to take her to the doctor tomorrow or are there some home remedies i can try instead first?

I think if you give them neat orange juice it is meant to help, plus plenty of fluid generally. My ds didn't poo for 2 and a bit days and the end result was....interesting grin!!
