Miralax for Toddler

My son has been battling constipation as we've gotten full into potty training. I know this can be a normal thing but we've had a couple of bouts here lately that have been really tough. So his pediatrician finally convinced me to buy Miralax today. I have been really reluctant to give him anything "unnatural," preferring to use prunes and that kind of thing, but she explained that after an episode or 2 of constipation the end of the bowels can actually stretch out a little, making the next poop that forms bigger than normal, and it...

Moms of Breastfeeding 14-18 Month olds...PLEASE READ and HELP!!!!!

Hi moms! I really need your help! I am having quite the time with my 16 month old daughter and her pooping patterns/tendencies. I need to hear about your children’s poop habits so I can decide if I really have something to be concerned over or if I am just being a worry wart mom. Here is the “issue” that she is having. My daughter was exclusively breastfed until she was 9 ½ months old. When she started eating solids then, she was eating “finger foods” as she has a strong gag reflux and anything pureed or remotely soft in texture...

Introducing Solids to Daughter, Digestion Is Tough

I have a 5 month old daughter just starting out on some solids. We prepare fresh fruits, veggies, oatmeal and rice. She also enjoys cherrios and graham crackers. Obviously her digestion has changed, but should she labor with bowel movements? I think this may be the reason she was up crying every two hours tonight. Anyone have the same experience and any suggestions? I will discuss with our family doctor next visit.

11 Mth Son - Cycle of Congestion/ear Infections, Has Reflux, Doesn't Sleep Well

Hi everyone, I have a 11 month old son with a combination of issues. Most recently, he has been sick on and off with congestion and ear infections, accompanied by fever, for over 2 months now. He's had 2 rounds of antibiotics (which causes constant diarrhea and then awful diaper rash!). He takes Prevacid for reflux, since about 3 months of age, which the dr increased 2 weeks ago from 7 1/2mg per day to 15 mg/day. He has never slept through the night! He typically wakes up every 1 1/2-2 hours, sometimes he will sleep 3-4 hours when...

Miralax "Clean Out"

My son is VERY constipated and the dr said we had to do a "clean out" as he called it. We had to do Miralax 4x today, 4x tomorrow, then monitor from there. My question is when will it start to work? He hardly had anything today and I want this to get started (so we can get it done!). Any thoughts? I'm calling the dr on Friday if I'm not seeing enough "results" by then.
