Never will your life revolve around poop as much as it does when your a mom.. *sigh*

I have 2 very opposite "poop" issues with my kids...

My 3 year old son has diarrhea every time he drinks juice or eats (most) fruits, and I am talking a little bit even... he just runs right away every time... he also has 1 kidney, a very sensitive stomach (he cannot be rocked too much) and he is SUPER Hyper beyond normal toddler hyper... we suspect he might be a hyper ADHD it is that bad. I guess eliminating the trigger fruits is what I need to do but I wonder if it is a problem to be overly concerned with or what... the whole situation is a little scary for me.

My daughter who is 5 was severely constipated to the point they gave her MiraLax and it helped, and now she has diarrhea and keeps crying and complaining her tummy hurts. When the doctor examined her both via x-ray and checking tummy tenderness she was OK, except the backed-up constipation. There was nothing hurting near her appendix or anything like that.. it was checked... We are stepping back on the MiraLax but its frustrating..

She also seems to have a great deal of anxiety about school, Ive talked with her teachers and her and everything seems OK on that end as well... but she cry's that shes misses me and if often so tired she falls asleep after school.

So any thoughts? Anyone else been through this?

Also if she is having a lot of toilet issues she may not want to go to school because she is frightened and embarrassed about coping with it on her own.

Has anyone suggested a food allergy/intolerance? My son had chronic constipation then diarrhea, bloating and a host of other issues. He went on a wheat free diet and within two weeks all of his symptoms had gone. Talk to your Doctor and get this checked out.
