Can mild constipation (going 3x per wk) cause fecal odor that's bad in public/when stressed but better at rest? Other cause? Have veg & water in diet.

Possibly

Stress
Try eating unpasteurized yogurt three times a day or taking a probiotic and adding some OTC fiber additive to take daily. This will bulk up the stool, and change the nature of bacteria in gut which will alter the odor. If this does not work see a GI doctor. If the constipation is of recent onset, get checked for thyroid function.

Can coconut water help with constipation?

Not the best

Constipation
Coconut water contains sugar, and like other juices the sugar can act as an "osmotic laxative", drawing fluid into stools. The fluid itself is useful, too. However, high fiber foods, plain water, and possibly stool softeners are likely to be more effective.

Usually not

The problem is that the child will probably not take in enough formula if you do this - I would recommend calling your doctor with your concerns.
