Parents of Constipated/Bowel issues kids tribe - Page 12
hey, hopefully we won't qualify for this thread any more after the cecostomy.
Lizzie has really been having a hard time since we took her off the antibiotics. I think they were acting as a laxative all this time, and without them she's having a lot of trouble going. We were getting by just using the Miralax a few times a week, but looks like we will be moving back to a daily dose.
How's everybody else doing?
I'm just ready to have it done, I'm so tired of crappy bowels (pun intended).
My daughter has suffered from chronic constipation her whole life :( She is 5 and we have tried everything under the sun to help her but nothing worked. I finally found green smoothies with flaxseed oil, acidophilus, and aloe juice to be the miracle for her. I started a blog to help other moms with recipes and suggestions http://homemomsandhealth.blogspot.com/. With one green smoothie a day with the right ingredients she has began to potty up to 3 times a week with much less pain and straining :) I will keep updated recipes and info on my blog for other struggling mommies :) Hope this helps.
my daughter has suffered tremendously from this. Try mixing 40% greens to 60% fruit in a smoothie with flax seed oil, asidophilus, and aloe juice it has really helped my little one. I have recipes on http://homemomsandhealth.blogspot.com/ that has worked for my 5 year old. She is very picky as well but asks me to make these for her :)
Be very careful with her sugar intake things like capri suns can aggravate the problem. We started using sugar free liquid water flavors and they help. Also I have green smoothie recipes on my blog http://homemomsandhealth.blogspot.com/. These have made a tremendous difference for my daughter. She is 5 and picky but asks for these daily. Hope this helps
