  • Lots of juice (prune juice is the best) but if u want your child to have a good flavor apple juice. Also rectal temp taking helps loosen it. Then their is some gas drops and I believe they have anti constipation med for 1 year olds at drug store. The might be for 2 and up cant remember.

  • A mix of 50/50 apple juice or white grape juice and water always works for my son.

  • Add the prunes in with something that he likes a lot. Or apple juice...but I gave my daughter apple juice every day for a month and it still didn't help. the prunes did might just have to make him eat them.

  • legs in a bicycle motion, stomach massage, warm bath and full body massage will help relax him........the thermometer trick always helps....they try to push it out do it and wait 15 or so...then repeat til it helps
