  • Besides getting the doctor's opinion look at what he eats everyday. Should be getting fruits and veggies and whole grain foods. Plus water, water, water.

  • You can buy miralax over the counter, you don't need a prescription for it.

  • Give him four or five dried prunes as a daily snack. They taste good, and they usually work wonders.
