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

Myy dd is 4 now, but we've had the same problem since she was 2.5 . About 4 months ago the Dr suggested giving her 2 tsp of Benefiber a day . We just mix it into her choc. milk and make sure she drinks plenty of water. Slowly but surely she is getting better. She will actually go to the toilet by herself now instead of me having to force her(screaming & crying) to do it. The more regular she gets and the more she realizes that it really doesn't hurt anymore, the more she is willing to try to go when she needs to. I know it's frustrating, but hang in there! It'll get better!
