My daughter is almost 3 and has had issues with bowel movements since she was 6 months old. The Drs keep saying that constipation is normal in children, but my concern is that I'm having to give her 3 caps 3 times a day of miralax. She doesn't have BMs on her own, I have to push her knees to her chest EVERY time she does have a BM. She will go up to 8 days without going to the bathroom. Not only does this really hurt her but it has also stopped potty training. She has now started complaining about a headache and that she feels like shes going to throw up. I'm taking her to the Dr today but I wanted to see if anyone has had experience with this???? Thanks in advance!
