  • Cranberry Juice, Apple Juice, Prune juice or really, any type of juice would work. If I overdo it, Juicy juice of ANY kind gives them the squirts.

  • Juice, a lot of juice, works as a great laxative/stool softner. You could also feed your child a bunch of prunes (found in the dried food section). They are super sweet so you might not have much of a problem getting them to eat them.
