My 5 yr old DD has been constipated on and off for weeks. She drinks plenty of water, eats fruits &/or veggies with every meal, and we only eat whole grain breads, pastas, waffles, etc. ... so I don't know what's causing it.
We've tried increasing her water, prunes, broccoli, bananas, and apple juice and she's still constipated. In fact, this morning she told me that her bottom hurts, "where the poopy comes out."
What can I give her? I'd like to avoid using laxatives and stick with the holistic/natural remedies.
Thanks in advance, mamas!
