Baby / Child Constipation
Not pooing at least 3 times a week.
Large or hardened Poo.
Painful and straining to poo.
Cant eat until they poo.
Soiled pants for over 1 year olds.
These are the usual signs to help diagnose constipation.
Age of your child will determine which medicines can be given but other options available to all.
Certain good habits will have to be maintained to avoid constipation in children.
Do not leave it too late as constipation can cause compaction of stool and becomes really painful for children.
While you can buy laxatives for certain age, they do not work straight away.
Increase liquid in-take, add more fruits and exercise (all age dependent)
For small babies gentle belly and leg massage can be helpful
