they need to be on more liquid diet to. if they pass urine atleast 5 times a day its aright but its required to get urine tested if they not passing urine as i mentioned or if they having some problem while passing. donot give any medicine for softening stools now, as that is not the concern now. let them take plenty of water or watery products.
