Thanks for query,
Cremaffin is safe but at this age why we should give daily.
Find out the cause and treat the cause.
I think his diet plan is to be changed.
Give more solid food,more water,green veg.juices,fresh fruits like papita,banana,water mellon etc.
Go for stool test to rule out warm infestation.
ok and bye.

The best way to counter act constipation is abdomen work, to any Healthy Child /adult. If your son is physically fit, just buy a Aluminium Ladder of 5 feet to 8 feet height. (the one without Steps and only with aluminium cross bars) And ask him to climb over it under your supervision for 5 to 10 times daily. Then see the effect with out any drugs or medicine. Or simply take him to the nearest park in the evening, and ask him to climb the square shaped Cross bar structure.
