Hello and welcome to HCM.
Thank you for your query.
It appears that your son is suffering from constipation
. Constipation is just a symptom and is mostly associated with some underlying cause. Some of the causes for constipation are:
-Inadequate water intake
-Inadequate fiber in food
-Daily change in eating habits
-Excessive dairy products
-Irritable bowel syndrome
-Antacids or laxatives use in excess can also cause this
Please discuss this topic in detail with your sons pediatrician
. In the meantime you could make the following changes:
-Increased water intake
-Increased fibers in diet (beans, sprouts, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, etc.)
-Warm liquids in the morning
-Prunes and cereal
