Question: Mere baby ko bht jada tite potty ho ri h. Usko bht lgta h is wajah se wo potty ni kr ra do din me potty ni hui
Answer: Hello mommy Constipation in a toddler can be caused by: not eating enough fibre not drinking enough fluids drinking too much milk and not enough water lack of exercise and activity being anxious about potty training can make your child "hold in" her poo, which can make constipation worse If your toddler is constipated, it will be painful for her to do a poo. This pain means that she might hold back even more and a vicious circle begins. If she is very constipated, she may lose the sensation of wanting to open her bowels altogether. Boosting your child’s fibre intake will make her bowel movements easier. Offer foods such as wholemeal bread and cereal, and fruits and vegetables such as prunes, figs, apricots, plums, peas, broccoli, sweetcorn, potatoes and baked beans. Prunes can be mashed and disguised in your toddler’s food, and she may find fig rolls tastier than plain figs. Give her fruit with the peel left on, and leave jacket potatoes and chips in their skins. However, don’t overload your toddler with high-fibre foods – they shouldn’t form the bulk of her diet until she is at least five. Too much fibre for a toddler could give her diarrhoea. Give your child plenty of fluids to help moisten her poo. Water is best, although you can offer well-diluted fruit juice too (at least one part juice to 10 parts water). Don’t give your child fizzy or sugary drinks. Constipation may make your toddler sluggish and low in energy. But being active will help to ease her constipation. Encourage her to get out and walk alongside the buggy for a short while when you’re out and about. Or play some music and get her to dance with you, or kick a football around the garden.
