Default What Can You Feed a Child to....?

help them poop? Poor lil ones I have work so hard to go to the bathroom and it kind of makes them miserable some days.
Any special foods? I thought prunes but I'm really not sure they'd eat them. I thought I saw where avocados might help or am I imagining it. I could mix them with something to help mask the taste. They're 19 months old.
Thanks!

I've read white grape juice.
I make my babe's wetter foods. Like adding water to veggies and mashing a bit. Let their cereal soak in milk for 20 minutes, bread type products have something juicy with them, stuff like that. It's been helping!

For my kids blueberries always did the trick. Also any kind of full strength juice came in as a disrant second. Prune juice did nothing!

Any of the P foods:
peaches
prunes
pears
peas
etc.

Also, black beans and pinto beans ALWAYS do the trick here

Raspberries, pears, apples, figs....

IMHO, The goal is soluble fiber that is easily digested without being too acidic or sugary.

Definitely avocados! Put them in a chocolate smoothie. Chocolate protein powder, almond milk, and an avocado. Can't taste the avocado, but it's thick and rich!

Peaches, pears, and green veggies. Better than prunes which I think is overkill on an infant/toddler tummy. This has always worked for me. Stay away or limit constipating foods like bread, bananas, and oatmeal. Apples have the happy medium of making you go but forming a stool.

Also whole grains for fiber. I started adding ground flaxseed to my morning oatmeal and it works like a charm!

Thanks all!
I forgot about bananas not being good for constipation and they eat them all the time.
Lots of great ideas!!

It's very unlikely that kids that age will eat broccoli but I have found that to be helpful. White grape always helped my kids. My daughter had problems with constipation when she was little.
I think sweet potato is a good fiber food to and water, water, water!

Forgot to add, pureed pumpkin works great as well.
I like to mix it in with vanilla yogurt and cinnamon.

Quick stop at the store last night and I bought the stage 3 pears and some vanilla yogurt which I'll stir pumpkin into for them(pumpkin works well for my dogs). I'll try those 2 the rest of the week and pick up flaxseed this weekend. That gives me a start for these poor lil tikes.
Thanks everybody!

one thing I used with my daughter is prune "tea." so, you take 3-4 prunes and steep them in hot water for about 5 minutes. cool the water down and... use it anywhere you need water. it is totally tasteless, and I used it to make baby formula when she was under 1 and to dilute her juice when she was 1 and older. it's often enough to make them go, but much gentler on their tummies than prunes.

Well, something worked for them. Thursday I gave them both the pears stage 3 and yogurt with pumpkin, Friday they went with no trouble. They had gone Tuesday too. For them, that's an improvement.

Thanks everybody!!

Apple Juice
Pears
Avocado
Olive Oil is like an instant thing(just drizzle cold pressed olive oil on mini pizzas, or veggies) You can even put it into a small glass of orange juice like 1-2tsp.

Steer clear of the "BRAT" foods
Bananas
Rice
Apple Sauce
Toast

** surprisingly Apple Juice is a laxative, while Apple Sauce/Apples are a binding food. The BRAT foods are good for diarrhea.
