Hi my daughter is 3 months old and weights about 13 pounds. She's keeps getting constipated and the doctor suggested miralax (polyethylene glycol). What dosage do I give?

Constipation . Is your little one drinking formula or breast milk? Infants fed breast milk sometimes go many days without a bowel movement. If stools are not firm and there is no significant straining, it is usually safe to watch & wait up to one week. I am not aware of recommended dosage guidelines for Miralax (polyethylene glycol) in a young infant. Other options: prune or pear juice, mineral oil or glycerin suppositories. Read more...

My 6 week old daughter is always constipated, can I give her miralax (polyethylene glycol)? If so how much how often?

NO. Miralax (polyethylene glycol) is not a good choice at this time. Depends on feedings - if she is TOTALLY breastfed then 2-7 days between stools are normal as breastmilk is almost fully digested. Formula babies more likely to have issues. ADULT apple juice good shot of it in each bottle can help soften stool. Glycerin suppositories will help lubricate/pull water to anus. See MD soon for more guidance. Read more...

4yr old daughter had been constipated I was told to give an enema she had lrg watery bm w/some firm stool, is she clear out&should I give miralax (polyethylene glycol) tom

Constipation Rx. The general rule of toddler treatment is to provide a wetting agent like MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) & aggressively manage past stooling issues for twice the duration of the constipation or 6mo, whichever is least. A clean out of large bm followed by some watery material does not mean the work is done. The baloon like lower bowel needs time to shrink back to normal & staying as empty as possible will help that.

Daughter has pain around belly button even waking at night. Has bm everyday but Dr. Made us use Miralax (polyethylene glycol) but pain persists.

Mgt/workup. I would advise having another evaluation to include a urinalysis, blood count and ESR test if the pain persists. Sometimes renal infections, pneumonia and appendicitis may present with these symptoms. In the meantime, please check her temperature and provide clear fluids. Read more...

My daughter is taking miralax (polyethylene glycol) and it isn't working, she took the miralax (polyethylene glycol) 6 hrs ago can she take ex-lax or sennakot or does she have to wait 24 hrs?

Support and Wait. If she is uncomfortable with the constipation I would not recommend adding Sennakot at this time. Depending on how long she has been stuck, it could take a bit of time for the miralax (polyethylene glycol) to kick in. You could try some giving some apple or pear juice to add fluid to the stool while you are waiting the 24 hrs. Read more...
