Okay, lets see if anyone can help me. My daughter who is 3 and 1/2 has severe constipation. We have been to a specialist, done the blood work (no major diseases came back positive), and continue seeing him. She takes an adult dose of Miralax every day, benefiber, only 2 cups of milk a day, no constipating foods, etc... I've done all I can do. She also has been potty trained since 20 mo. but has only pooped in the potty every now and then - otherwise in her pants. She also gets about two yeast infections a month (a secondary the doc says to constipation) and have done the yogurt, creams, etc... She only poops once a week! Anyone have any other home remedies or advice? I am exhausted and really don't want to get a colonoscopy done - thats the last resort the doc says. Advice please?
