Constipation in Children

Posted on

​​Bowel patterns vary from child to child just as they do in adults. Most children have bowel movements 1 or 2 times a day. Other children may go 2 to 3 days or longer before passing a normal stool.Children with constipation may have stools that are hard, dry, and difficult or painful to pass.
