How to help a Constipated Child

A Guide for Parents to understand more about Children’s Constipation

Thank you again so much for your help with the videos Lulu. I am so happy to say we now have Holly pooing in the toilet and by herself. She is still battling with sore poos from time to time, but I am keeping up the movicol and keeping her as hydrated as we can.  Thank you so much again for your advice it has saved us.

How can I get my child to poo in the toilet?

99% of the children I see who are nappy/diaper only poopers are also constipated. Which is why this video is part of the the children’s constipation video series. I really believe it’s essential that you understand what is considered ‘normal’ for a child’s bladder and bowel function before addressing and progressing your child to poop in the toilet.
