  5. how to get my 5 year old to poo easier

how to get my 5 year old to poo easier Lock Rss

DD1 goes poo every 2 or 3 days. This is fine usually as she is not in pain and her poos come easily.

But this last week she has been twice and she has had to push quiet hard with not a lot coming out. She is not in pain though.

What foods/drinks would be good to offer?

She is pretty stubborn about food sometimes. So I know kiwifruit is good but I know she won't eat it.

Does she eat cereal? If she does I would get some psyllium husk (in the health food aisle) and put a teaspoon with her cereal. I find if my dd's are having trouble it helps. Also make sure she has plenty of water and fruit such as ripe pears and dried apricots. smile
