Constipation is when a child’s bowel movements are so infrequent that they are insufficient for passing stools. Common symptoms include stool that is dry or hard, that can be painful to pass, and can cause children to apprehend or avoid bowel moments. Stool should be soft to ensure a quick, natural, and easy evacuation process. You can actively work to prevent constipation by including fibre in your child’s diet, by making sure your child is well hydrated, and making sure your child regularly engages in physical activity.
