  • Poor kid, I agree a lot of fluids, and try prune juice or pitted fruits of some kind.

  • Lots of fluids, and like another poster said, pitted fruits. On the brighter side, you might be able to set your watch by his bathroom trips today....

  • water, water and more water!!! Poor lil guy!!! Hide those things girl!!!
    Oh ya, I know this is going to sound stupid, but hear me out! In front of the toilet when he's pooping, put like a little step stool so his knees are in the kinda upper position, helps with "pushing" and relieves the strain on the back a bit. Just saying ya know? We have to do this too. Oh and reading material helps too(Not sure how old he is, but maybe a picture book or some kind of toy catalog or the sales papers, Don't ask, I think it's a guy thing)
