  • Colace. It's a stool softener. Do not use a laxative.

  • I would try some juice first - apple or prune. If that doesn't work, you could try a stool softener. Increase her intake of fluids and fiber from here on out. Call her dr for a recommendation on brands of stool softener

  • Oh and the other more obvious suggestion.....Ask your child's DOCTOR. There may be something going on we don't know about or that would require a bit more help than medication.

  • Besides what others have said, she needs to drink plenty of water every day to keep this from happening....not soda, not only juices, not sugary drinks, but plenty of water.
