DD hasn't had a BM since Tuesday, shes screaming in pain. I just gave her some prunes. How long does it usually take to work?

For my son depending on how backed up he was 1 to 3 hours. I hope it works soon so she can feel better.

How old is she? She might be better off with a suppository. The prunes can take 10-12 hours to really get things moving.

If the prunes don't get things moving, try apple juice or sauce. That always seems to loosen my boys right up.
