3 year old has severe constipation
My 3 year old niece has severe constipation. She cries and panics whenever she goes to the bathroom and her stools are rock hard. It is causing her so much distress!
My sister has given her prune juice but it isn't helping much. I saw you recommended coconut oil and probiotics for babies who are constipated, is that advice the same for older children? How much should she give her and are there other foods that you think would help? Her children are picky eaters, so I am not sure if she would be successful incorporating coconut oil into their diets, unless we could sneak it in with her other foods somehow.
Thank you so much for your help! You are soooo appreciated! :)
