Quoting MunchkinWrangler:" He won't drink it with pulp. And I was told to only give it to him with clear fluids. Although, she ... [snip!] ... Good to know! A few relatives/friends recommended the green veggies and I just started trying it. Didn't even look it up."
Quoting MunchkinWrangler:" Aw crap. I forgot about that. Someone had mentioned to me that the green veggies help them poop, and ... [snip!] ... is more of a veggie-guy than a fruit fanatic. He generally sticks to bananas (obviously a no-go), strawberries and raspberries."
Quoting Jude ♥ JGL:" Try non-dark green veggies. Like lettuce, cucumbers, green beans. I would definitely ask before you ... [snip!] ... It didn't stop until I became a vegetarian. Does he have a really meat heavy diet? Is it possible he's getting too much iron?"
Quoting MunchkinWrangler:" Mix what? The miralax? That's what you do anyways... lol. He won't drink it regardless of what I put ... [snip!] ... to lean towards vegetables more, which I never had a problem with... but if they're more binding I will have him back off."
Quoting Jude ♥ JGL:" I cannot drink Miralax either because of the texture. Have you tried putting it in with someone that already has a texture? Like orange juice with pulp? Or a milkshake?"
Quoting Meg ღ ღ:" Will he eat cucumber or celery? Those are higher water content veggies."
Quoting MunchkinWrangler:" No, he doesn't. He's not a huge meat-eater. He's a bit sensitive to dairy.. but does fine with skim ... [snip!] ... without problems... but it all started up again. I've tried to think of anything that's changed in his diet... but I can't."
Quoting Addi's Momma:" I would be promoting prune juice before Miralax. I can't believe a doctor has allowed this for 3 years. ... [snip!] ... are addictive. His body could become dependent on them for bowel movements. High fiber, lots of water. Apples are good"
Quoting Jude ♥ JGL:" Maybe cut out milk and only do almond milk? LO loves almond milk. Does he eat yoghurt? Or take a pro-biotic?"
Quoting MunchkinWrangler:" No. He doesn't like either of those. He likes green beans, peas, broccoli, carrots, corn, spinach... and that's about it for veggies. He eats carrots in mass amounts."
Quoting MunchkinWrangler:" We did that in the past. It didn't make a difference. He eats a yogurt pretty much daily."
Quoting Meg ღ ღ:" Have you given him a probiotic along with the yogurt?"
Quoting Meg ღ ღ:" Okay, man this makes it a bit more difficult for you. FYI, stay away from corn. It doesn't digest properly. Hm.. green beans are good as well as carrots. "
Quoting redneck mamma:" Isn't activia supposed to have a high probiotic content like more than regular yogurt to help keep you regular?"
Quoting MunchkinWrangler:" Lol, I'm aware that corn is not great for you.... considering it's full of natural sugars and comes out looking the same... but thanks.."
