My 2 1/2 year old battles with constipation, fairly often. I know everyone has tried and true remedies for the obstacles of "toodlerhood". We get it taken care of pretty quick with a variety of techniques; applesauce, extra greens, lots of fluids, warm bath, mineral oil, sometimes even a suppository. I was just wondering if any of you had a solution that I haven't thought of yet...?Answer Question

I give my son, who already eats fruits, vegetables, whole grains, oatmeal, and all the other good stuff, a fiber supplement and nothing to drink but water. Juice was decreasing his appetite and is very slow to gain weight. He drinks about 12 ounces of water and has the fiber powder mixed in with his oatmeal, baby food fruit, and yogurt throughout the day. It's safe, all-natural, and you can't smell it or taste it at all. I got it at drugstore.com and it's Benefiber for children.
