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

My ds has had this same problem for two years and no pedi really took us seriously until a few months ago. We are working on altering his diet; but have ended up using a laxitive too. Now we go from hard as a rock to can't hold it in, we just want a happy medium; but can't seem to find it. We are trying cutting dairy from his diet and maybe even wheat. One thing to avoid is too much fiber. If you use too much fiber without significantly upping the water then the fiber has the OPPOSITE effect, we learned this the HARD WAY, no pun intended.
