Treatment Of Constipation In Babies - Natural Remedies & Medical Options Available

There is no special diet for a 2 year old Namrata, baby should eat family food, what you all eat as a family. What do you offer your 2 year old?

I m worried abt his food habits .. as soon he gets up .. he needs to eat smthng imnediately .. i want to know wat shd i gv him early mrng in this case . Also he do nor eat vegetables .he eats only chapathi , stuffed chapathi.. rice n dal smtimes that too wid lotss of effort. Pls suggest wat shd i do

Early morning you can offer any fruits. There is no fibre in his food (vegetables) that's why constipation. Give him oats porridge, pumpkin, peas, pears, papaya these are stool softeners. If he is eating biscuits, cakes, cookies etc stop it immediately because maida will constipate.

When the child has good relationship with the food there will not be any food strike, How do we create one? A child who is forced fed will have disliking for food. When they sit before the plate they will know" they like it or they don't like it.. They are hungry or not hungry, mummy is going to force feed" Same applies with distracted feed. If your child is 1. 5 yrs and above do the following things:
1. Take the child to market and get excited about vegetables.
2. Make him/her to select vegetables, go for colourful ones.
3. Ask them to seperate, clean and take help in arranging it in the fridge, make them to wash and cut the vegetables (plastic knife) and cook it however it was badly cut.
4. Appreciate the food and say its yummy tasty etc.
5. Eat along with them.
This way you will be able to crate an interest and you will not be doing this for ever, just for some time so have patience. Remember vegetables can't be hidden in Paratha, pureed and added in roti or added in maggi. You can't cheat a child forever, sooner or later they will know you have added beetroot puree in thier roti and will reject it royally. Transparency is very important when you bring up your child, so don't cheat them. Remember if a particular vegetable or dish is rejected by the child, cook the same thing after a week or so. Don't quit saying " he doesn't like lauki". If we offer the same food on 20 different occasions they will definitely get a liking and eat. Keep away all the chips, biscuits and cookies or make once a week or as a treat. if the child is going to finish half packet of biscuits then you can't expect him/her to finish her dal chawal. By this time the child should be on 3 meals plus 2 snacks. Meals should have all the food groups like carb, protein, fat and vitamins. Roti/ rice; sabzi with ghee on top of it will make one wholesome meal. Eggs and oranges as snacks will complete their requirements. Curd can also be offered as snack or as dip for Roti. If you are offering more than 400 ml of milk everyday then reduce it to 200 ml, because milk will just fill their tummy leaving no space for solids.
Let your kid fall in love with food and look forward to pleasant meal times.

He is not able to understand all this now ..he is lacking his growth milestones as doc said to me .. he has just started to walk..and i tried giving him vegetables but he eats only wat he likes ..

I can only stuff everything n give him or in khichdi

Hi, pl use a great formula milk line Danone's Aptamil with prebiotics. I tried it for my kid since she was 2 years old and it helped her with not just colic and constipation issues but also built stronger immunity... she also liked the taste of it.. since these days, we don't find enough nutrients available in vegs and fruits, I ensure she drinks this to maintain better diet routine .
