Quoting Brayden Todd's Mommy:" Whats the best medicine you have tried for your kids over the counter or prescription for constipation? ... [snip!] ... but I think his system maybe starting to get used to it? He's had constipation problems since shortly after birth. Hes 4 now.."My daughter has chronic constipation, she's 3 1/2. I give her prune juice or apple juice. She also has to take a powdered mix that we put in her water. It helps her. I forgot what it was called, but her pedi prescribed it.
Quoting Melxx:" suppository, My nephew was ALWAYS constipated when he was little, and you insert it into the rectum and he always pooped right after."But if it's close to coming out, (like they have to poop, but can't) it's extremely painful for them to have suppositories inserted.
Quoting Brayden Todd's Mommy:" His is AWFUL!!! we have done lots of enemas... in the past.. He was on a prescription powder called Kristalose.. ... [snip!] ... powder called Kristalose.. It didnt help as well as Miralax.. But I figured we will just have alter it.. from time to time.."Have you asked his pedi to see if he had any bowel problems?
Quoting Brayden Todd's Mommy:" Hes been once.. they seem to think he will grow out of it eventually.. I had the same problem from birth ...

Maybe an additional fiber supplement for kids?
