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

My kiddo has this problem and our doc. said absolutely NO laxitives, because your body gets used to needing it and won't work on it's own. He said a little sprite and prune juice, or prunes. There is also prune sauce in the baby food section. Tastes like apple sauce, or you could mix with applesauce too. Lots of water like already suggested and tons of fruits, veggies and introduce fiber slowly. Flax seed added to baked goods or on yogurt helps too. That makes me go big time.
