13 month old son has been constipated since birth. Taking miralax (polyethylene glycol). Stools are soft but hard to pass. He screams in pain, cries & grunts when pooping.

In brief: Needs specialist

If the stools are soft and your son is still crying in pain with bowel movements, a referral to a pediatric gastroenterologist (specialist in stomach and bowel problems) is in order. It is possible that there is an anatomical problem which is interfering with normal stooling.
Ask your primary doctor if a referral is needed.
