Hi. I am visiting briefly from The Nest. I have an issue regarding DS (just turned 2) and his bowels.
He has had on-going problems (for about a year) with constipation and we have been advised by his ped to give him Miralax, as needed. He is mostly affected when we travel or when he gets out of his daily routine.
Over the past few days, he has been increasingly uncomfortable, pushing hard, straining, and grunting, and this is with a good diet and a bit of Miralax. We are not traveling and he has not had any routine changes.
Today, he was screaming and crying. I called the doctor and since it was Sunday, I spoke with a nurse. She said to give him a children's glycerin suppository, which I did.
He still has not gone and several hours have passed. He is happy, though. I am calling the doctor in the morning, but has anyone had a kid NOT go after a glycerin suppository? What happened?
My heart breaks for him. I hate this.
