My daughter is 3 years old and we have always had a problem with her going poop. She goes to the bathroom every three to four day but it is very hard and painful. She is seeing a gastrointestinal doctor who has proscribed her Miralax, I also give her prunes and prune juice and have also increased her water intake. I don't know what else to do? I need an answer.

Another thing that has helped is to massage her tummy. Work your hands in circles around her entire abdominal area, nice and gentle. That helps wake up the bowels and assist with breaking the food down to help with digestion, which will ease with constipation.
