My poor girl is having issues with constipation (hard pellets of stool - which she cries and screams while passing); She had one episode of this a few weeks ago then back to normal until this weekend.

I would second ground flax seeds as being AWESOME! They can be added to yogurt, or sprinkled on most things.

Dr sears has some good info on FLax: http://askdrsears.com/html/4/t041700.asp

This is also from Dr. Sears on constipation and discusses remedies in cluding flax: http://askdrsears.com/html/8/t081100.asp

Have you focused on the "p" fruits? Peaches, pears, prunes ... all good! Also consider adding ground flax seed to any oatmeal / yogurt / etc., that baby may be eating. You also can use flax seed oil, but ground flax seed is better.
