Constipation is a common problem for kids in the US – nearly 5 percent of visits to the pediatrician and a quarter of referrals to gastroenterology specialists are due to constipation, according to a report in the Journal of Pediatric Health Care. And when they don’t go regularly, stool sits and gets dehydrated, making it even more painful to go. “It’s this vicious cycle – the longer that poop sits there and the longer that the child doesn’t want to push it out, the harder it gets and the worst the cycle becomes,” said Dr. Wendy Sue Swanson, pediatrician, executive director of digital health at Seattle Children’s and author of Mama Doc Medicine.
