Being able to pass stool without any discomfort is a marker for a healthy child.; The most common problem in kids these days is constipation. They are already on severe laxatives and writhe in pain while passing motion.;
1. Food: no packaged drink or food, homemade fresh food, include ragi, sattu- fibre rich food, wholesome food, fermented food and raisins.;
2. Water - Lots and lots of water. Nothing packaged or milk powders.
3. Oil: no refined, only ghee and cold pressed oils, add a spoon of ghee to all their meals.
4. Vitamin - d and b12. Check this with your pediatrician.
5. Active: jumping, moving, running all are important- consistently for a better stool movement. Malasana also helps. But most importantly holistic movement is important.;
The problem will persist for years to come if not tackled with a lifestyle change approach. Make sure everyone in the family including you develop a habit to pass stool in the morning. It is a non-negotiable part of the routine and the earlier the habit is developed, the better it is for the kid. A clear stomach will benefit in many ways, like being able to eat properly, not having mood swings, less irritability, and clear skin.
I can see regular posts or questions by our momstars regarding constipation issues during pregnancy. I guess this increases because of the intake of iron rich diet as well as iron tablets. But I don't think you need to worry about this so much because there are definitely medication for this. 😊
Lemme share something....mine is like chronic constipation 😉 This started weeks before my marriage in 2011. I couldn't poop for 3-4 days... in spite of getting the tendency. Condition was becoming serious and there was hardly any excitement of marriage left. Okay so this is how it started. Now,when I got the positive result of my pregnancy I knew this would be a major concern. I discussed with my gynaec and he prescribed me a medicine. I take 4 tablespoon daily at bedtime as prescribed and it works 😊 Those suffering from this problem please discuss this with your gynaec . I am sure there would be a lot of options available for pregnant women.
P.S. Not mentioning medicine name since I am not a doctor and fear that people might be misguided. 😊
