My twin toddlers of age 21 months frequently suffers from constipation, as winter are just started at my side, they almost do not drink water..fluid intake is less in general. The duphalac syrup advised by doctor never helps them..they are passing stool some time the fourth day :( pls help me with some home remedies which has actually helped anyone to come out of this....

Your welcome. You might want to watch cheese and other dairy too as that might cause them to become constipated. There are other foods other than the junk that can cause that too and its healthy for you. Eaten in small amounts is one thing but eating too much is going to cause problems. You can always do a search online for foods that cause constipation.

Thanks Evelyn for your response.
Even i heard a lot about Prune juice but unfortunately i never found this in the online store over here :(..I have started giving both of them: Raisins which are soaked overnight from past two days and saw them relieved by having stool in 2nd day, i will be continuing giving this (raisins are anyways good for health) and will watch if this gives them permanent sol...Else as you said i shd go for another doc's opinion to know the right cause...from past few days i am closely noting their diet too, have taken out junk food like cookies/biscuits,chips etc (which they love to have anytime :-)) from their diet.....thanks once again...

I am not sure of home remedies but maybe you might get a second opinion from another doctor about this. They might have a digestive problem that is not being figured out. Sounds like the doctor is trying to treat the symptoms rather than the actual problem. You should also be pushing the liquids too. You should also look over their diet and see what they are eating. Some foods can trigger constipation and if they are getting too much of it, that can cause it as well. If you remove that food from their diet for a while, it might fix the problem. Also there is a drug called Mirulax or something akin to that spelling that is also used to help kids go. You can also try prune juice.
