If you're a parent, your kid's poop is probably the centre of your universe ^_^. So what happens when the little one won't go? Or if your child is struggling and in pain? Hard stools are the worst! Especially when they're few and far between.
"Healthy Gut, Healthy Child." When was the last time you paid any attention to your child's gut health? Chances are, unless they're having some sort of digestive trouble, the gut is one of those things overlooked as just part of daily life.
"How do you know if your gut is healthy and working like it should? Just look for these easy signs." It's common to overlook things which are working well; the human body carries out many functions and processes which usually run smoothly without us having to think about them or having to tell our body what to do. In contrast, it's only when things break down that we appreciate its importance and how much we rely on it.
"Gut Problems." Tummy troubles are nothing new among young children, but it can be very difficult for parents to know what's wrong – it could be constipation, diarrhoea or lactose intolerance. The problem is, each of these have different causes and different solutions.
"Constipation." When young children are having fun, it's hard to convince them to stop, even when they're long overdue for a toilet break. Replies like "Just five more minutes, please mummy?" and "Wait, I'm not finished yet!" are common, and sometimes parents just give in to a child's innocent persistence.
"Mommy, my tummy hurts!" That's a common complaint from young children, and it can mean many things – perhaps they need a toilet break, or they're experiencing constipation or lactose intolerance. Parents quickly learn to distinguish the problem, but among young children who can't express what's wrong, such troubles can be very challenging to deal with.
