When my son was about 1 year and six months old, he was having severe constipation with hard stools , sometimes smeared with blood and a very painful condition. He used to cry severely while passing stools. Bulk of his diet was milk though he was taking fruits and cereals also. Treatment by the General Practitioner was not helpful. Then we took him to the government hospital where the Paediatrician advised us to stop giving him milk and increase the content of fruits and cereals etc. in his diet.
We followed the above advice and observed that my son immediately got relieved from his troublesome condition.
