My little one is EBF and is constipated and in pain.

Tried a little formula mixed with dark karo syrup -- nothing

She barley will take a bottle her dad has to do it and its a fight toll over an hour for her to take one ounce last night. so stuf added to bottle is very hard to do.

I need some sugestions please help my LO go poopie she is pain. I have also been using gas drops like crazy . she is the gassy bab I have ever seen. Like some last like 5-8 seconds and she is screaming in pain until they come out. I am not eating dairy or most veggies on the list that can cause tummy problems in little ones HELP

Don't give her formula, it'll make it worse. Try cutting soy out of your diet for a bit and see how that works.

Stimulate the rectum with a thermometer dipped in vasolin. It worked great for dd. But be prepared it can be messy.
