Overcoming Constipation In Children 2 Years?
Night .. my 2.5 year old son has constipation. Some have suggested drinking yakult, but how come it doesn’t work? Or is it only a temporary side effect or what? And should constipation sufferers be able to drink yakult or not? Thank you
Constipation can be caused by various causes. How many times has your child experienced constipation?
Constipation in children can be caused due to causes such as:
less fluid and fiber
obstructive ileus / gastrointestinal blockage
side effects of certain drugs
hardened stool obstruction
One of the causes that is quite often cause difficult child bowel movements is due to lack of fluid and lack of fiber. Children really need to drink enough water, if the digestive tract is less fluid it can make the stool consistency harden and can cause constipation.
Yakult is a beverage that contains probiotics, its use can be quite safe given to children. Giving yakult in children can overcome constipation if the cause of constipation is due to digestive system disorders. But there are many other causes of constipation that might cause your child's condition. In addition, on some occasions, giving a first week yakult may cause side effects such as flatulence or constipation.
Therefore, if the condition of your child has happened more than 3 days then you should check your child directly to the doctor, so that the doctor can examine your child's condition further. maybe later additional tests will be carried out such as blood tests, or an ultrasound examination if necessary.
