I have tried everything. Dr says he is just ready to be potty trained it think they are honestly full of it. My son is 22 months old and for past 3 weeks hasn't had a normal bowel movement. I have tried prune juice, apple juice, fiber gummies, having him eat fiber filled foods, cut the milk out of his diet, suppositories and he still is yet to be regular. We are gonna do a suppository each day for a week and see if this doesn't help but why all of a sudden can he not poop?! He used to be so regular! Now he can't even poop a turd without crying or straining and when he does strained he only usually makes skid marks so it takes a suppository to get him to poop a turd. Yesterday he was so bound up after the suppoistory kicked in he pooped approx a 4" long turd that was about the size of two quarters around :( It was awful. I need help? What else can i do? anything?Answer Question

Dr. on call had me give 1 tablespoon of mineral oil in juice to my son once a day till he had bm. Then whenever he would need it. No more than 1 tablespoon a day. Raisin Bran and Cheerios work like a charm also, at least on my son.
