  • half a tea spoon of benafiber and half a cap full of maralax in some apple juice. that's what I was told to give my daughter and it works for her.

  • My pediatrician recommended a tsp of dark Karo syrup, which is probably similar to brown sugar. Also, if he's nausiated or gassy from any therapy to help loosen his stool, try peppermint. I use the certs mints.

  • try changing his diet and getting him to eat more veggies. also it is normal for kids not to go #2 for several days. If his tummy isnt bothering him now i wouldnt worry about it. oh yeah have him drink lots of water.
