SO I feel like a horrible parent, but I really need help. My son is 5 years old and was saying his poopy won't come out. So I gave him some stuff to help loosen. Well I misheard him. He told me his poop wouldnt stop comng, so I gave a kid with diarrhea something to help him shit. I am such a f**k up. Anyone know what I can do to help it stop :( I can't watch him hurt anymore.

Have him eat bananas and toast. I'm sure he won't really feel like eating, but those are supposed to help stop diherreah. You're not a f**k up, it will pass. Just love him and cuddle him for now.

I thought Banana's help to move someone's bowels?

Nope. They're part of the BRAT diet and work very well. BRAT:
B= Bananas
R=Rice
A=Applesauce
T=Toast

Make sure he drinks a LOT of water. He will dehydrate very quickly. Pick up some gatorade in his favorite flavor while you are there to restore his electrolytes. He will be okay.

this is a little late, but mac and cheese or pasta may help too.. something a little binding, but not too hard on the stomach.
