3yr old recovered frm contipation now got white/pale poo plse HELP
My 3yr old daughter suffers frm constipation now & again last episode lasted about 3m was giving lactolose & senna prescribed by doc dd's now been passing normally now 4 about 2m but her stools are white/pale yellow . I have noticed her twin sister also has light coloured poo does anyone know what it means?are they lacking in some thing i try to give them a healthy diet but are not great eaters.
You should have it checked out by your GP - but its probably something basic like a food they have eaten, since its both of them. It may sound silly but have they eaten lots of pale coloured food or lots of rice? My baby has that colour poo when he has diahorrea so perhaps its a digestive upset?
Hello - I have a 3 1/2 yr old who is suffering from constipation. She is soiling & wetting her pants as she is holidng in her poos. The toilet is a big issue at the moment. I have been prescribed lactalose - My problem is we have been starting and stopping using this but now find we should continue to use until problem resolved - what i need to know is how often to give and what amounts - Help
from searching "pale faeces" it seems to bring up pages relating to Hepatitis A (which apparently is common) as ONE of hte symptoms. However, please do not be alarmed. Probably is loads of dairy and that frigging lactulose has got to come out somewhere - please let us know how she is and what the GP says
Hi - I know that I can help with any advise in this topic but it your problems seem to stem from my childs problem. I am a desperate mum really looking for help and advice - 4kids I would love to know how you sorted your contipated child and what dosage you gave. I just dont know what to do for the best - my 3 1/2 yr old just will do anything rather than poo and its now a big issue for us all - Please help
Its been a huge issue for me too teenybump - my 8 yo still gets very constipated so much so that at school hols we tend to overload him with lactulose/senna/picolax and let nature take its course when he doesnt have to be anywhere. However, last weekend he managed to completely offload himself - and dropped half a stone. Truly I have never seen anything like it!
Thanks jampots - my problme is that i am unsure of what lactalose acually does - I am scared of giving her too much and her having the runs - she is wettin gherself and soiling her pants trying to keep in poo in. Will the lactalose give her the runs?
teenybump, my ds has the same problem, he has 2 5ml spoonfulls of lactoluse twice a day, he has been taking it daily for 7 mths now, and he still tries to hold it in for as long as he can. I think it takes a long time to get this problem sorted, you must keep taking the lactoluse everyday, not just now and then.
