thanks for writing back–actually, funny that you mention that. That was exactly the problem a year ago…so We slowly backed off and things got a lot better (on Miralax he has constant diareeah) and he has not taken ANYTHING to poop now for almost 8 months. I manage it with diet alone. His last pull-thru was 2 1/2 yrs. ago.
Some days the consistentcy of his poop is loose, sometimes loosly formed. He has a daily movement after breakfast and after dinner–almost like clockwork—then there seem to be all these other days/times when he “leaks”—I have been afraid to give him too much fiber–certainly dont want to risk backing him up. His system is VERY SENSITIVE to traveling and sugar–both give him diareeah quickly if I dont stay on top of his diet. I have noticed if I add fiber to his diet when I know he will have alot of sugar (Halloween, Birthday, etc) he does well.
He says he cant feel it sometimes when it comes out, but sometimes he can. Maybe he feels it when its thicker??? Therefore add fiber??? Do you know how much a child is suppossed to have daily? We have noticed some stool is pushed out with toots–but not all the time. He is followed by a Dr. so I am confident he is not backed up, he feels fine, tummy isn’t extended or anything.
Of course the Dr.'s just say I’ll figure it out–but it’s hard to find others with this issue. Currently, I have him wearing panty liners to save him changing his pants and underwear so much…but I am hoping to just stop the leaking. It is beginning to get to him a bit emotionally…
What are your thoughts?
