Hi Meenu! Constipation is a common problem in children. U need to find it, is this a chronic problem with ur child or it's just one episode of constipation. If it is a chronic problem, it is advisable to take following steps: 1. give lots of water to ur child. 2. Add fiber to ur child's diet in the form of salads, fruits, whole wheat flour, cereals etc. 3. Reduce intake of junk food. 4. Refined flour which has no fiber in it and is harmful for the child in the longer run should be done away from child's diet. 5. Sedentary life style should be changed to an active one wherein child's does lot of physical play. 6. Give small frequent meals. 7. Increase amount of fat in child's diet. On the other hand if it is just one episode of constipation u cud wait for one or two more days. If problem still persists u cud give laxative on the advise of doctor. And also it is advisable to take above mentioned steps. Hope this works!
