It's not dangerous, just not very gentle on their little tummies. Talk to your doctor about natural options instead.

try senna powder from a health food store.. i take raisins and steam them or slightly boil til their on the mushy side.. smash well then ad about about a tablespoon to about 1/4 cup of raisins and mix thoroughly.. give a tsp by mouth.. it taste well if you like raisins and a natural way that really works.. if adults use this, take a couple tablespoons. it won't hurt you a little more or less. refrigerate and use within 2 weeks..

I am sorry, but did you actually write that you "BREAST FED YOUR DAUGHTER TILL SHE WAS 3 1/2 YEARS OLD?" I am completely confused. Also, my son has been on and off Miralax for 2 years and I have to say, it has made things so much worse. I only followed doctors orders and I wish I had gotten a 2nd Opinion.
