  • You might ask about mirlax with your doctor since it is safe for my six year old but was even taking it at four years old

  • Regulate your diet! Best advice I was given. I tried just increasing fiber, but it made me gassy and that was even more uncomfortable. Just try cutting back on things like corn syrup (high fructose too), pasta, rice, and anything that tends to bind you up. DOn't just do it for a day or two. Really commit to it. Then you will see a change.

  • A glass of Prune juice is all you need.
