Constipation in two year old male child

Sir, I have a two year old male child who has been suffering from severe constipation for the past three or four months. None of the home remedies are working. We have tried ghutti, gripewater and other home remedies. He usually has milk from bottle twice a day.. at night and on getting up in the morning.. eats little bit of everything we have but not in a considerable quantity. His constipation h as become very severe and painful. He is not toilet trained and doesn t sit for bowel movement .

hi ,
welcome to helathcare magic,
for long term benefit surely the diet , toilet traning is important.
but to brake the vicious cycle of hard stool i ll suggest you the enema of seasame oil 10ml everyday for 10 days.
this is very effective treatment called 'basti' in ayurveda . it is simple , non painful .
but cooperation of child is imp . but he will coopeaate once he knw it doesn't hurt .
get it done from the appropriate person .
it wil surley help you to get rid off the problem

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum. I would suggest you to make some changes in your son's diet. You need to add in lots of fruits and fruit juices along with grains,vegetables and cereals. A diet low in fiber and not taking enough water can cause constipation. You need to give him a cup of water to drink on. Also please ensure he has lot of activity and involves himself in playing.Wish your son good health.

Welcome to Health Care Magic Forum. I will suggest some points to be fixed for your two year old child :
1. Give a glass of water with the food plate otherwise children generally eat playing if the water is infront of him he also drink water properly.
2. Give some juisy and fibrous fruits daily.
3. I suggest a home remedy for him to give. Take 1/2 teaspoon Ajwain(Trachyspermum copticum)+ 1/4 teaspoon black rock salt + 50 ml water and boil it . when it will remain 15 ml then pour it give 5 to 7 ml three times a day for 10 to 15 days.
4. Fix the time of sleeping for child.
5. Don't give him junk food.
6. Give him vegetables with food daily instead of Paranthas.
