  • I have no idea what you're talking about but,... my son had constant pooping issues, I finally took him to a dietician and we adjusted his fiber intake,. if he had 8-9 grams of fiber, he could finally poop normally... we can tell in 2 days if he isn't having enough fiber, they made fiber bread with 3-4 grams per slice, the have fiber one bars, probiotic powder etc

  • Besides fiber try increasing exercise and water intake
    Warm baths often get things moving too

  • Fiber one bars are awesome! I've had issues my whole life, and they work the best of anything I've ever tried. My child also has had the same problem around that age. Her ped. put her on half the adult dose of Miralax a day. Good luck!

  • Does she eat any whole grains, vegetables, fruits? Those are great sources of fiber as well. Make sure she's drinking enough water, because increasing fiber intake without water will make her very constipated.
    You can also rub her belly in a clockwise direction. You don't have to use a lot of pressure, just gently rub, but that's the direction of the colon/large intestine, and it can help move things along.

  • Miralax works very good. Give her 1/2 a cap(bottle top) in water. It will soften the poop & make it easier to go. Also cut out the rice! That is probably what is making her not be able to go. It makes you constipated.

  • Dried fruit such as prunes and apricots are also good sources of fiber.
