I could have written your post a little over a year ago, and the good news is that my dd didn't have a blockage. She had one painful poop (somewhere during toddlerhood) and became scared to go...so she would hold it in for a day, and then it was harder to push out because it was larger (not hard). And the vicious cycle began.
If you really think there is a problem, go to the ped...
But I would try some home things first. I cut cheese and bananas out of dd's diet, and snuck pureed prunes into muffins, cookies, etc. I also pushed fruit over other snacks. Over time, she had less issues with pooping. But I won't lie to you...it took a few months to get things right. Even now, at three years old, I must make sure that she eats a certain amount of fiber/fruit per day, and has enough water, so that she doesn't start the cycle again. I wish you luck!
