What can i give a 6 year old for constipation
what is good to give a 6 year old to releive constipation
To help a constipated child, have him or her have a bowel movement. If this does not help, your child will have to use a laxative. Talk with your health care provider before you administer the laxative, or go to http://www.keepkidshealthy.com/welcome/treatmentguides/constipation.html, for prescription.
Milk of magnesia but make sure you adjust for a child's dosage.
A lot of fruit specially prunes
You should ask your local pharmacist
Prunes should do it. Plenty of water. Olive oil is helpful- if you can get him/her to swallow it. If these natural remedies are not working, I'd take the child to a doctor to rule out bowel obstruction and get a recommendation for a softener.
Kondremul it's like chocolate milk
Hot bath helps too
My pediatrician always had us use miralax. You should check with your child's dr on the amount.
