    My gal is 3yrs old and recently suffering from consipation (for one or two months already). She only poo 1 or 2 times in one week (7days). I have bring her to see dr, on medication, given more fruits, more vege, but also nil help. It's like a torture whenever I ask her to go poo, she will cry like mad!
    Need some experience advise fr mummy out there. Thanks.

    Re: Consipation

    3 things needed for easy poo (I learnt from a Dr.):
    1. fibre (not excessively, which will in turn cause constipation)
    2. water (drink sufficient water)
    3. oil (include a little healthy oil such as olive oil in diet, acts as lubricant for poo)

    As for fruits, the best fruit that works for my boy and many others is PRUNES.
    I give my boy 2 organic prunes daily and he poos easily.
    On the day he doesn't eat prunes, he'd miss 1-2 days of poo.

    Other poo-inducing fruits are papayas, peaches, plums and pears. Still, prunes work the best for many kids.

    Avoid giving cooked apples and unripe bananas as these would cause constipation too.

    All the best!
