Constipation is a common problem in kids that arises from wrong habit. Usually kid avoid going to toilet because of their fun activities. This makes the stool hard and next time when they go, they feel it very hard and painful. This causes fear of going toilet in children and this make their constipation worse. This cycle goes on. @Griselda, please ensure that your daughter is not developed constipation because of this. Make her poo two times in a day daily.
