Children’s Health: Constipation

Constipation is a stressful condition for anyone but it can be extremely painful and frustrating for young children and it can be hard to know how to help. If you find that your child is experiencing hard stools, pain on toileting or feeling unable to relieve themselves, you may need to seek advice from a medical professional.

Showing the single result

Talking to your doctor or pharmacist can be reassuring when you are caring for children, and with a problem like constipation, they may be able to suggest solutions. Some medications and gentle treatments such as stool softeners may ease constipation and make life easier for your little one.

Making dietary changes can make a big difference to children who suffer from constipation on a regular basis, and this may be very effective instead of medication. Adding more fresh fruits and vegetables to your child’s diet will naturally increase their fibre intake, which can help relieve constipation naturally. 

Drinking plenty of water is very important, and increasing your child’s fluid intake will benefit their health in many ways. You could try setting them a challenge to drink the recommended amount of water each day or begin using a bottle which measures their daily requirements so that they are able to take control of their intake and begin to manage their health in this way.
