My 2 and ½ year old daughter is having constipation issues. It’s been getting worse over the course of a year. A child shouldn’t be in this much pain when using the bathroom. It pains me to see her sweat and cry so much when trying to pass a stool that I don’t know what to do. The stool that comes out is as large as an adult stool, and hard. I've tried adding fiber to her diet, a spoonful of mineral oil, prune juice, cutting back on the milk, and nothing seems to be helping. I’ve been to the doctor for this issue. They don’t seem too concerned about it at all. She is even starting to lose weight. She lost 2lbs in three weeks. I made the doctors take an x-ray and all they said was “yep she’s full of poop.”......Answer Question
