constipation that turned into diarrhea with painful gas and mucus
My daughter is 2 1/2 and she has been constipated since she was 5 months old when I stopped breastfeeding. We went to the doctor a few months ago, and she told us to fleet her for 3 days and give her lax-a-day daily. We go and see her again at the end of Jan. When we fleeted her, she never passed any constipated stool, but she was sick at that time and had diarrhea. The doctor told us that she should still pass a constipated stool. Her bowels have been moving pretty much daily since we started with this bowel routine. 3 days ago, she began getting abdominal pain that causes her to go into the fetal position and cry out in pain. The pain passes, but it always comes back. She has also had bad diarrhea for 3 days, and has gone through at least 15 dirty diapers with diarrhea today. Starting today she been passing a large amount of mucus, that is yellow, and light brown, at least 5 times today. What is going on???

Take her to the ER, I'm sure she's getting dehydrated and your pediatrician is not helping.
