My 5 yr old dd has been complaining of a stomach ache on and off for several days now. Before this, she would complain occasionally. She has very large stools, so I assumed this was why. I've thought of and tried different things like taking her off dairy, etc. No changes. She is a bit dramatic and has a twin brother so she likes the attention she gets when her "tummy hurts". Should I try a daily fiber drink or food? Is there something I'm not thinking about? We do not have insurance so I don't want to run her to the doctor everyother day, but I certainly will if I need to. Has your child gone throught something simliar? What did you do?Answer Question

My sons Urologist has him take MiraLAX 3x's a week to make sure his bowels move and that they are not too big or hard. It works wonders to keep his system in line and now only takes it once a week.
