Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. Its not normal for a 3 year old to cry and be constipated to the point of bleeding. You should modify her diet first. Stop the cows milk and increase fruits and vegetables if you are able. Prunes or dates can help. Many kids will accept baby food prunes on bread or toast. You can also give her Miralax pediatric
