We also used Miralax when our children had problems at that age, recommended by our pediatrician.

My son used to have BAD constipation as a baby.. once he got to about 2, I started feeding him a prune a day (break it up into tiny pieces so they don't choke) and ta-da.. no more constipation. A prune or prune juice daily, is my suggestion. It worked for mine.

We switched my daughter to soy milk and the only time there has been a problem since is when she was dehydrated. A couple glasses of apple juice or water fixes that.

The good old-fashioned standby: prune juice.

my son had a terrable case of constipation. matalax didn't work so we had to use magnesium citrate. its pretty sour but that stuff goes to work. you can get maralax and magnesium citrate over the counter.

I use miralax. My son has had issues pooping ever since he started eating baby food instead of just Breast milk--when he was 8 months. He holds it in because he doesn't like to poop. It's this huge ordeal everytime he needs to go after hes held it in for two days. I put him on the toilet everyday but wont pressure him unless he's gone too long. His doctors have continued to recommend miralax and as long as im consistent with it and he gets plenty of liquids and fruit and oats he can't hold it in as long. I definitely recommend it. My son is 3, but started miralax at 16 months old. It's sad we still have to use it but it works.

Miralax is NOT safe. The active ingredient is PEG - it has been linked to musculo-skeletal damage, urinary system problems and mental-health/child-behavior problems.
There is a forum for victims of Miralax/Movicol on Yahoo Groups, and because of this I have never used it in my family.
