Have her avoid sodas, juices (those are high in sugar contents). Veggies are great. Fruit, too. I would have her retrain her bowels with miralax (polyethylene glycol). Try before bedtime, 1/2 measuring cup at first. ...Read more

The doctor can examine the child to see what might be the cause of the constipation. Many times, there is no obvious cause, but sometimes there is (such as not-pooping due to anus pain). ...Read more

Drinking hot water helps break down trapped gas. You may be gluten or lactose intolerant. A gastroenterologist is best qualified to evaluate and treat you if symptoms persist. ...Read more
