Like a lot of you here we have been battling chronic constipation for years now. My son started around 6 months and is now 4.5yrs. We have had a lot of success with Movicol and have had good maintenance on 1 1/2 sachets per day.
He no longer withholds, has a good toilet routine but every time I cut down the Movicol (to 1 sachet per day) his stools become too hard and cause a back up.
I want to get to the cause of the constipation and have read a few studies suggesting that it may be down to a milk protein allergy. Thought I might try cutting out his milk but not sure to cut out all products including cheese, yoghurts etc.
Has any one had experience in this?
Also, he loves milk! He prob drinks too much but I don’t restrict it as like to encourage his fluid intake. Would soya milk be a good alternative?
