I only have a six month old but he has been constipated horribly, too. He keeps getting stomach cramps and he just cries! It's so heartbreaking! :( But I did try giving him MORE food... fruits and veggies... and he has responded well to that. Prune juice, apple juice, pear juice.... all seem to help speed up the process. Also, you can rub their belly or do a "bike" exercise with their legs to help them move along.

Good luck. ^.^

Hello. my son is almost three, and had the same problem when I started potty training him, but eventually got over it. try feeding her LOTS of fresh fruits and veggies. (But not bananas, they can make it worse) Also, cut back on the dairy, milk yogurt and cheese they will make it worse. be sure shes drinking lots of water, and maybe some watered down juice, but mostly water. I would definatly not continue with the potty traing until she's not been constipated for a couple months. wait until she's ready to potty train and make it a positive experience, so she wont be afraid and hold it in.

Really? Interesting... I'll have to try that if it get's bad again. She is getting regular since I have stopped the cow's milk. But she would scream and cry when she couldn't have it in the morning so I just bought some soy milk.
Oh all she drinks is apple juice and water, that never did help her. It's also hard to feed your kid fruits and veggies when they are such gosh darn picky eaters! My fault though... when I was pregnant with her I didn't eat healthy at all.

Thank again :)

Are apples a good source of fiber?

I know I'm a little late to the party, but the thing that my grandma always used (She had 11 kids and 40 grandkids so she ought to know!) is dark Caro Syrup. Just a big spoonful. I don't know why it worked but she swore by it!

Does your child like fruits and vegetables. Honestly try apple juice, plums, prunes, anything that will start getting the GI system moving. Otherwise if nothing you have tried at home, if they don't work, talk to your doctor. My nephew, who is three, had that same problem and they put him on a long treatment of laxatives and different meds to get his bowels cleaned out. Now things are starting to look a lot better. So do what you can from being at home, otherwise talk to your doctor and see what they think you should try.
