My baby is 2 years old. For the past four months, she gets constipated. She has to move her bowels daily because if she does not have it more than 24 hours, she will get constipated. We tried changing her milk, but it only made her stools harder. She is currently on similac go and grow. We add water on her milk because she hates drinking water and she is a very picky eater. I use pedia lax to help move her bowels. What should I do?

Instead of using 30 ml water with each scoop, please add 45 ml water to each scoop for making the formula. Also, reduce the consumption of milk and simultaneously increase the consumption of fruits, vegetables, chicken, etc., whatever the child likes. As of now, you can use laxatives as and when required. However, as soon as a week or two after the above diet changes are made, the need for a laxative should be much lesser than what it is now.
