Re: Extreme Constipation in Two-Year-Old - Ideas?

We have this problem in our house too. Definately increase fiber....add prunes and pears and prune and pear juice, stay away from binding things like bananas, applesauce, chocolate (choc. milk) rice and toast. Milk can be binding too. Add lots of water to the diet. We also add Karo Syrup (clear) to milk...this seems to help a little too. The doctor told us to add it rather than laxatives which can become addicting.
