My daughter for the past 2 weeks has been really constipated. The doctor gave me a laxative for her. Since she's been having that my daughter is starting to poo every day but really struggles and sweats. When it comes out its really hard and a weird greeny pinky colour. Has anybody ever come across this before if so what caused it and what advice can you give me?

What are you feeding? How old is your daughter? PLease give us more data so that we can help better.

My pediatrician said that as long as a baby's bowl movements are earth tones (green, brown, tan) not to worry. With that said, I wander if the pink is reflective of blood in her stool, either from staining to pass hard stool, or from another problem. If you haven't already, I would call your pediatrician and ask.
