Your baby is suffering from constipation here thay need treatment for at least three month. And duration of teatment may be prolonged. Itially disimpaction of stool is needed either by enema or by oarl medicine followed by non habit forming laxative toilet training: like sitting the child on pot for atleast 5-10 min after some food intake in morning fruit and fruit juice like apple juice or pear juice in need -exercise - no stress during defecation consult to pediatrcian for disimpaction of stool and use of laxative medicine.
