In brief: Senokot (senna)

Fruits, fluids, ambulation, metamucil all safe if lactating.
Avoid constipation it will alleviate the hemorrhoids which are pretty much universal after giving birth.

In brief: Fluids

Usually it is a result of inadequate fluids and not drinking extra fluids to compensate for breast feeding fluid losses.
Be sure to avoid caffeine and alcohol as these will contribut to constipation.
