Re: My Mom needs some help here.....
My oldest son did this when he was small. His doctor suggested that I give him mineral oil. It made him poop and it was soft, so it basically just slid out of him. The mineral oil doesn't taste bad, but it isn't the easiest thing to swallow. I would give him 2 teaspoons mixed with orange juice once a day, and in no time at all, once he realized it wouldn't hurt him to poop, he was going with no problems. Good luck! I hope she can find something that works for him!
