Addressing constipation in children
There are many simple self help measures that can be started to address constipation for a child. We will help educate your child about how to improve fluid and fibre intake, how to sit on the toilet properly, for how long and when. It is also important the child does not put off going to the toilet when they need to poo.
Things like fear of sitting on a toilet, or sensory aversions around toileting can also be discussed and addressed.
Sometimes medication or fibre supplements are required to help with constipation and breaking down the poo stuck in the bottom. We work closely with our trusted team of doctors and pharmacists to ensure your child is getting the best treatment .
