Signs of constipation:
- Fewer bowel movements than usual;
- Hard, dry stools;
- Difficult and painful when passing stool; and
- Stomach pain/abdominal discomfort and crying during bowel movements.
If your child has these symptoms, she may be constipated. However, if she has a bowel movement every two days and as long as the stool is soft and is not difficult or painful to pass, she is not constipated.
