Do any of your kids have constipation issues? Brandon's has had problems nearly since the day he was born. His GI doctor prescribed meds for him but he hasn't been on them for awhile since he's been doing okay. Just recently he's been backed up again and I remembered that when he had a can of Pediasure a day he did better, so I got some and he's doing good again. I was told that his not eating much and constiptation issue were likely connected but was a which came first (the chicken or the egg thing) and caused the other.
Just wondering if anyone else has these problems and what they do for the kiddos.
Isaiah has chronic problems in this area as well. He gets a stool softener every morning to keep him regular. We try taking him off but within a day it's back. I felt like a mean mom the other day at his 18month check she said why in the world would you take him off to make him uncomfortable???? Hmmmm...I don't know to see if he still needs it. She also said she'd recomend waiting until after potty training to take him off as it can effect some kids with learing if they are constipated.
Anna is also on a stool softener. She's had consitpation issues forever. It's the only physical explanation I have for why she has no desire to eat. We're hoping that she'll develop an appetite when she's not constantly backed up.

Our little girl also has chronic constapation. She has torn her bottom on four occasions. We use a stool softener daily. Our dietician told us this could harm her colon and rectum making the muscles week and unusable later. But evertime we try to take her off she has torn. So... She does not get the daily medications because her kidneys do not alway s function properly.
