Can we talk about poop?

Kahlan has been constipated lately. As in hard poops but she is pooping. She's kind of struggling and only gets a little out each time. In the last 12 hours she's had a jar of pears. I have two more on hand. Should I just keep giving those? Or any other advice? Thanks!

  • Have you considered trying prune juice or prunes?

  • She hates prunes. Won't even open her mouth for them :(
  • Water. In sippy or bottle

  • Does water help for the little hard poops? Everything I've found is for when they aren't pooping at all. :(
  • Being hydrated leaves plenty of water for the colon to draw in to soften the stool. So yes I second the water idea.

  • When DS1 was a little older, his doc recommended a little apple juice to help with constipation.  Kiddos will usually drink apple juice better than prune juice and the results are similar.

  • She finally pooped a much softer poo. Without a blow out. :) I think she's just going to get apples or pears And water daily. If it comes back, we'll try juice. Thanks everyone
