I'm happy that you have asked me to assist you with your child and hope that you can benefit from my many years of helping parents like you.
It is hard to predict but I'd start with a yellow veggie such as squash and add apple, pear or white grape juice as they are natural laxatives and will keep her stools soft.
Applesauce, bananas and carrots always thicken the stools.
what about spinach?
That would be fine too.
Usually you can just add apple juice along with the constipating foods to offset their effect.
We've been giving her prune juice.
Its softening a bit.
But just wondering what vegetable won't cause constipation.
Apples, bananas and carrots are the worst and the others are less likely - lots to choose from.
Again, every child is different but bananas are the worst.
If you mix a little apple juice with them it is better.
How does that sound?
It won't always be this way as her system gets used to those foods.
