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

Mine is similar to the above. We do dried prunes that are chopped up. She likes to eat them that way now rather than blending them up. Plus 100%prune juice mixed with some apple juice. There is also a prune/pear mix of baby food that some kids prefer. Extra water, extra fiber (oatmeal is sometimes helpful), try eliminating dairy for a time. Establish regular poop times and keep her company. I made a real effort to watch for signs that she might need to go and talked alot about how pooping every day would help her not to hurt when she did go. Good luck!
