If your child goes on for days without having a single bowel movement, he might be constipated. In this case as well, the nature of the stool plays an important part in identifying if your child is constipated or not. Constipated children usually pass large, hard stools, which cause a lot of pain to them. As a result, the child avoids bowel movement, since he associates it with pain. This leads to the pile up of waste materials in the body and aggravates the problem of chronic constipation in children. Stool softeners can be used to eliminate the problem of constipation in children. Polyethylene glycol 3350 is often prescribed by pediatricians for children with constipation, since it can be tolerated well by all kids. This is an odorless and colorless powder, which can be mixed with water. Docusate, Senokot, Bisacodyl, etc., are some of the stimulant laxatives, which can be safely administered for children. Metamucil is a good stool softener for toddlers in the age group of 2 to 5. Although, corn syrup is widely used as a natural stool softener, its use for children is not recommended due to certain risks associated with it.
