DS has had gut issues from birth, as most ASD kids do. His problem is chronic constipation. As a baby, upping his puréed fiber rich foods and a bit of Karo syrup did the trick. Then, when he got picky as a toddler we would do benefiber. When he turned 4 we started a daily regimen of Miralax and that worked great. Now he's 9 and it hurts his tummy so we cannot use it anymore. Even worse, the constipation creates a blockage and the softer poop leaks around the blockage and he has to change underwear several times a day. I have to help keep him clean with wet wipes or he gets a rash on his anus. It's horrible for him and very embarrassing.
I tried Dulcolax and it worked once but next few times he said it hurt his tummy and he still had the seepage. Idk what to do next. Oh we also tried Juice Plus which just made it worse!!!!! Please give me any suggestions you've tried and had good results. Thanks!!!!
