We have been dealing with constipation with my son practically ever since he started eating. (Poor kid sucked on, didn't even eat, a teathing biscut when he was 8 mos, didn't poo for 5 days! Later I figured that oats were the only grain he could tolerate, although he's a bit more tolerant now.)
I've recently eliminated soy milk and it seams to be making a big difference. Also, I've been talking to him a lot about the connection drinking lots of water and having soft poos. (he is 3 btw) It could very well be a food she is eating. Cheese is very constipating (I'm also almost eliminating that).
Try smoothies and stuff.
We had a no juice ruloe for a while, until I decided I'd rather have him drink liquid than nothing. We water juice down at least 50/50 w/ water. And offer herb teas, and still lots of water too. Try a novelty drinking container. I have a few we rotate.
