Remember that the dose of Miralax is "enough". Meaning whatever it takes to have a soft stool daily is your child's dose. Also remember to schedule toileting time (usually 15 minutes after a meal for 10 minutes at a time). The child will need behavioral help as well.

In brief: Fiber
Adding more dietary fiber is a good 1st step.
Prunes for example may work well.Other fruits and vegies may work.
