    The first step is simply to apply some Vaseline or lubricant with aqueous base year always mid diaper change, continue doing this twice a day for a week until you have achieved defecate. If this does not work in 24 hours, buy 12 infant suppositories your pharmacy (no prescription required) and use one every 12 hours for 1 or 2 days, stopping when you get defecate (ask your pharmacist to explain the best way to apply).
