constipation. I give him 2 teaspoons of mineral oil everynight with
his last meal. The doctor told us to use this because, he didn't like
using chemical laxatives. He said to wait an hour after his meal
before giving it to him but, it kind of hard give a kid just plain
oil. So,we mix it with his food and he does really well with it. I
hope this helps you. Love and Light, Tracey and Daniel (17
months..Preemie, CP, microcephaly, reflux, and sleep apnea
