Dear Doctor , My daughter is two years old and is suffering from constipation . Doctor suggested her with cremaffin, initially it worked for her. Now that ,She doesn t have proper appetite, doesn t have liking for any kind of foods even chocolates except very few like egg, carrot, rarely biscuits, curd rice etc., She like s orange juice more and we give her regularly by adding palm candy. I forcely let her to take greens in daily food. sometimes it work her for free stools, at times this even is not working. Kindly suggest me with food habits that could get rid of her constipation issues. Would yoga do good for her?

Pediatrician Dr. Aseem's  Response
Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, constipation is common prob in children, first you have to rule out the cause of constipation. in children general cause of constipation are irregular bowel habit, less intake of liquid, high protine diet,thyroid prob. so you should give her plenty of liquid, n fiber riched diet, give carbohydrate riched diet like glucose powder, rice. every morning she has to be gone into toilet eighter she want or not. you should give her lectulose syp rather then cremaffin n give milk of megnisia.
