My poor two year old has had problems pooping for along time now. I brought her to the doctor for it twice and they just kept saying use miralax and prune juice,have her eat more fruits and veggies(yeah right its a battle to make her eat fruits and veggies :( ) but my question is what else can i do because nothing really works besides miralax but I dont want her to become dependent on it and her doctor said not to use it longer then a week at a time. I am debating bringing her to another doctor because I am so frusterated for my girl! She cries and screams poopy owie and will sweat and turn red when she tries going. It is very hard to see :(. I just don't want to bring her in for a third time just to be told the same stuff as the last two times!
Have you tried stool softeners?? or is that what miralax is?? im not sure sorry..... you may need to get her a sepository. Or use the old soap up the butt trick . I did that with dd and it worked. Just take a small piece of bar soap. Not special soplap but normal plain barsoap and stick it up there. N i guess something in it makes em push my daughter ised to bleed from it being so hard. But she had to get it out. I hated it.
