  • Maybe you could try a little Karo serup (the dark corn stuff). Try mixing it with a lttle milk in a cup. It tastes sweet so she should drink it.

  • the karo syrup may work but it can also raise her blood sugars and put lbs on her...try increasing fruits and veggies, and cut back on things like rice as they constipate. If she is still having an issue they do make stuff for toddlers that you mix with drinks, ask your doc and he can help . :o)
