My dd is the same, somtimes she bleeds. We have tried dried fruit, rhubarb, and fresh fruit, none of it made much difference. Sugar puffs worked for a while. I just smuther fruit in custard or put it in jelly and then she will eat it. If you find anything that works let me know, its realy upseting to see them in pain.

Prunes, pineapple or kiwi fruit work for my dd - if she won't eat prunes whole, try prune juice.
