This week we are talking about constipation with toddlers. Check out what our reader said....
"My 18 month old toddler has been having constipation issues for the last few months. He has a very hard time passing his stools and as a result, tries to hold it in making it even worse. I've read up on the subject and the advice I've seen is to limit dairy products, increase fruits and veggies, and feed your child foods that are high in fiber. My pediatrician has recommended feeding him specifically prunes, prune juice, peaches, pears, and peas. The only problem is that my son won't eat them!!! I've tried to add them to smoothies to hide them as well as mashing them up and trying to incorporate them into his daily foods but most of the time, he just won't eat it (it's like he has a 6th sense for healthy foods.)
What suggestions do you all have to get your kids eating healthy foods? What has helped out with your children's constipation issues?"
So help her out! Address her concern for her 18 month old. How have you gotten past constipation issues and helped your child eat the things that will be good for their bodies?
