5 year old is constipated and there is a snow storm-any home remedies?
My son had a cold last week and the cold medicine has really backed him up. He didn't go yesterday and he still hasn't gone today. I thought he would go at daycare but nope, I have a children's "mild laxative" that I gave yesterday(although I had to mix it with juice so I don't know how much he got) but it hasn't helped. Right now he's sitting on the toilet having a temper tantrum saying he doesn't want to go poopie, but he is also holding his stomach. It's to the point where I want to take him to the dr(or urgent care place since dr isn't open and I don't think it warrants ER) but the roads are absolutely horrible.
Does anyone have any safe and effective home remedies for quick relief?
