My 3 year old is ALWAYS constipated

I have him drinking a lot of water, he eats a lot of fruits but it’s hard to get him to eat veggies( what 3 year old doesn’t fight u about that) even though he poop is soft he still struggles to make a poop. Any suggestion

    Have you tried probiotics? We use culterelle for kids.

    You might talk to his ped. I just learned a couple days ago that kids can have large masses of poop stuck in their digestive tract. It can be seen in an xray. Is your son potty trained or currently training? Does he ever withhold poop? Are you making sure he has regular bowel movements? These are all things that could contribute to constipation even if he has a good diet.

    Hey Alexis he is potty trained. Some days he does hold it and some days he doesn’t. I tried the probiotics like Sarah up top said and so far his doing better
