  • grape juice or prune juice. pediatricians also say that if juices do not work just take their temp analy and it usually causes a bm.

  • I would suggest the website www.pedia-lax.com I have used their products and like them. There is a product recommendation guide But the main thing is that their site has a fair amount of info about constipation and things to help prevent it in the future.

  • Try giving extra water and fruit as the others suggested. Don't do the thermometer thing. It will work on babies but probably not a toddler and just doesn't solve the real problem...

  • Add Benefiber to his cereal or drink. It's tasteless & clear. It's not a stimulant laxative. It works.

  • Apple juice gives my kid the runs every time. Be careful of a poopy explosion, though, lol.
