Child has tight motion with pain. Does enema. Suggestions?

Hello Doctor, My Wife is having this problem that is Motion is always a problem especially when she was a kid. It will be difficult during motion, which will become tight. Even my 2 year old daughter has the same problem. Being a kid she is sruggling a lot. It becomes tight and she starts crying before motion. Some times only a small dot will come and after that she will try but can t. Water intake is almost normal and around 2 ltrs of water, jucies and milk[Half Milk/Half Water] is taken almost everyday. My daughter does not faces this problem everyday but almost every 15 days or so she faces this problem. I am also taken care of the fiber intake for the daughter. Tried almost all different ways which i could i found on the internet. We usually give Enema to make easier for the daughter to do motions. I am wondering why is this happens every 12-15 days. I think enema is not a good idea. Please suggest how could we help my daughter for her motions.

Thanks for your query.
Constipation is usually related to dietary intake,but certain conditions like hypothyroidism.fissures,hircshprung's disease needs to be ruled out.
Since your child is not having this problem frequently so there is nothing to worry.
Increase intake of water and fiber ,give salads,green leafy vegetables.fruits.honey.
Avoid juices.Do not give any fried or junk food.
Whenever she has problem give her sitz bath(make her sit in tub of lukewarm water for 10 to 15 minutes 2 to 3 times a day.
In case problem persist get her evaluated by pediatrician.
Wishing your child good health.
God bless.

thanks for writing

good that you have taken care of the fiber intake and water intake

but donot give her fruit juices rather try giving her whole fruit so that you can increase the fiber intake

pl write in detail about her dietary intake of fiber so that we can review her fiber intake and advise her accordingly

constipation occurs in various other conditions like hypothyroidism also pl get the child examined by a pediatrician

take care
