Hi doctor,

My daughter is 22 months old. She weighs about 16 kg and she goes for potty with a gap of three days. Is there anything to worry? Moreover, her potty is very very hard to come, I can feel the pain during her potty. Please suggest.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I assume your daughter's age is 22 months. May I suggest.

The child is getting less fiber.

Water intake may be less.

Not to worry, but her food and dietary habits need to change.

Give her more of a homemade diet, like vegetables, and soups more option.

Water intake should be at least two liters a day.

Laxative/ suppository is too early for her to use. That should be avoided.

Increase her fruit/ juice intake. I am sure these options will surely help her.
