Re: Constipated Toddler

My toddler sometimes has issues too. I don't get it because he eats a TON of fruits and veggies. I have given Miralax to my 4 year old, but not my 2 year old.

Recently, he had a experience where he was trying very hard to go and could not. It lasted most of the day and he was straining and crying and obviously very uncomfortable. We ended up giving him half of a children's glycerin suppository. That was suggested to us when my oldest son was around a year old but we never did it. But, my oldest was younger when half was suggested. We sort of wished we'd given my 2.5 year old the whole thing. But, it did work. It isn't something I would want to do regularly though. I'd probably research the Miralax since yours is an ongoing problem.

I hope you figure something out soon.
