  • my girl that is 6 is on miralax and has taken it since about 4 years old. Doctor said safe to give. Plus more fiber and water.

  • if to young for miralax they say lay them down on floor and pump their feet like a bike. Can even find drops in the baby section at your local store or even call the doctor.

  • You can feed her prunes, the baby ones by gerber are good and they also make prune juice. On a regular basis to keep her from becoming constipated, give her fruit at each meal and prunes can be mixed in with the fruit. I drink my fiber everyday to stay regular and water is important too. If she is still on formula add the prune juice to her formula.

  • My daughter had that same problem when she was 2 years old, once I found out why, I started giving her more fiber-rich foods. You have to start off slowly, otherwise it can make her have stomachaches. I would try to offer her 2 prunes a day so that her system can get used to them. Does she like apple slices? If she does, you can slice them very thin so that she won't choke on them since she is still little and you can let her dip them in some yogurt. Also, try prune juice, I heard that it can help as well. Good luck.
