How to keep a 2 year olds stools loose? We have to keep Miss 2’s bowel movements soft at all times due to being born with no bottom and a reconstruction at 8 weeks. Things not going well and she is in Randwick children’s. She can have a normal diet but no raw carrot or corn (these can cause blockage in bowels for toddlers as they do not chew properly). Anyway, we give fresh pear, apples, bananas, strawberry, prunes, sultanas and she drinks water. Big fruit eater this little one! Has anyone got any other fresh ideas to keep her bowel motion loose. Just looking for advise really. Doctor has already has her on medicine which is changed every other month as her body adjusts. Helpful comments only please.
