有多种常见的原因会导致便秘,发生其中一种(或多种)症状则会导致便秘。

饮食:纤维和液体摄入不足的话,孩子可能无法消化某些食物,如过量食用的加工食品和甜食。从母乳过渡到配方奶粉,或更换不同品牌的配方奶粉等饮食变化,根据孩子的身体反应不同也可能会导致便秘。
恐惧:如果您的孩子有可怕的排便经历的话,那么孩子可能会因为疼痛和不适而害怕排便。
药物和疾病:如果您的孩子已开始服用药物并且正出现便秘状况时,您应向医生咨询。
孩子日常活动的变化:如果出现从尿布更换到便盆,或去新国家等变化时,有些孩子需要时间来适应变化。这些新事物与孩子的日常活动有所不同,所以孩子可能需要一些时间来适应新变化。

确保您的孩子摄入足够的液体,防止便秘。水、果汁、汤和牛奶都是可以给孩子饮用的液体。

 

孩子便秘的解决办法

如果您的孩子正在经历便秘,可以参考以下治疗方法来解决便秘:

  • 饮食:在孩子刚出现便秘迹象时,注意孩子最近几天的饮食状况。解决便秘的一些家庭疗法包括避免食用香蕉、大米、苹果酱和吐司(BRAT)、白面包和面食。孩子应食用梅子、木瓜、李子、桃子和梨,以及大量的蔬菜,如西兰花和深绿色叶类蔬菜。确保孩子每天饮用足量的液体,特别是当食用较多富含纤维的食物,促使纤维增加,加上液体摄入不足的话也会加剧便秘。
  • 药物治疗:医生会根据儿童便秘的严重程度来建议儿童使用泻药和软便剂。益生菌也有益于调节孩子的肠道健康,父母可以给宝宝食用酸奶或益生菌补充剂。
  • 鼓励孩子定时排便:如果您的孩子害怕使用便盆或上厕所,您可以多给孩子鼓励来帮助孩子消除恐惧。饭后轻声询问孩子是否需要使用便盆,如果孩子排便成功的话可以用小贴纸来给孩子奖励。当孩子坐在马桶或便盆上时,让孩子的双脚踩在凳子上以抬起双腿,这个姿势会让孩子的膝盖成35°角,是理想的排便姿势。
  • 运动起来:如果您的孩子不锻炼的话,运动走不有助于身体(和肠道)动起来!

父母在对抗硬硬的大便时也会倍感痛苦。如果孩子在对抗便秘的话,可以让孩子食用健康的水果来调整饮食。健康的饮食对培养快乐的全球宝宝有重要作用。如果您不明白如何治疗便秘的话,请务必向医生咨询专业建议。

Constipation Relief for Toddlers

Constipation in children may occur from time to time, and it can be a nerve-wrecking experience.

Just like adults, bowel movements in children may change due to several reasons. But if you see that your toddler is straining or crying whenever he or she is passing motion, it would help to address that soon to alleviate the discomfort.

Toddler constipation symptoms

How can you tell if your child is suffering from constipation?
Toddlers may exhibit the following symptoms, and parents can look out for these signs if you suspect your child might be constipated:

  1. Screaming or crying during bowel movements
  2. Bloated stomach
  3. Loss of appetite
  4. Sudden crankiness or avoiding the potty or toilet
  5. Slight soiling on diaper or underwear (liquid traces of poop)
  6. Slight traces of blood

 

Is your toddler having a tough time during bowel movements? Help relieve your child’s constipation issue, so he feels better soon.

 

What causes constipation in young children?

There are several common causes to constipation, and one (or more) of them may be taking place and hence resulting in constipation.

Diet: insufficient intake of fibre and fluids, your child’s digestive reaction to certain foods, excess intake of processed food and sweets. Changes in diet such as the transition from breastmilk to formula milk, or switching from one brand of formula milk to another, may also result in constipation depending on the child’s body reaction
Fear: If your toddler had a fearful bowel movement experience, there’s a chance he or she would be afraid to go to the potty due to the pain and discomfort.
Medication and illness: If your child has started on a course of medicines and is experiencing constipation, you may wish to check with his doctor.
Changes in toddler’s routine: some toddlers take time to adapt to changes, and that can include the transition from diaper to potty, or traveling to a new country. These new happenings are different from the usual routine so your toddler may need some time to adapt to the new changes.

Ensure your toddler gets sufficient fluids to keep constipation at bay. Water, juices, soups and milk are different fluids for your child’s diet.

 

Toddler constipation remedies

If your toddler is experiencing constipation, here are some treatments to help your relieve your child:

  • Diet: Monitor your child’s diet in the recent days leading up to the first sign of constipation. Some home remedies for constipation include eliminating Bananas, Rice, Applesauce and Toast (BRAT), white bread and pasta in their diets. Instead, offer prunes, papayas, plums, peaches and pears, as well as plenty of vegetables such as broccoli and dark green leafy vegetables. Ensure that your child has sufficient intake of fluids throughout the day, especially when fibre-rich food is offered as insufficient intake of fluids coupled with a boost of fibre increases the likelihood of constipation too.
  • Medication: Laxatives and stool softeners for children may be recommended by the doctor, depending on the severity of the child’s condition. Probiotics can be helpful in regulating your child’s gut health too – offer yogurt or probiotic supplements to help.
  • Encourage potty time: If your child is afraid of going to the potty or toilet, he or she may need more positive reinforcement to allay those fears. Gently ask if your child needs the potty after meals, and consider using stickers as rewards for being a little champion. Elevate his or her legs by popping them on a stool when your child is seated on the toilet bowl or potty – this position creates a 35◦ angle at your child’s knees which is recommended as an ideal position for bowel movements.
  • Get moving: If your toddler is not getting his or her dose of exercise, it helps to get that body (and bowels) moving!

Battling those hard stools can be a painful sight for parents. If your little one is tackling constipation, give those healthy fruits a try by adjusting your child’s diet. A healthy diet plays a part in raising happy, world-ready children. If you are unsure about starting a treatment for constipation, always seek medical advice.
