Our 4 year old dd doesn't like veggie and often has cramps. Our doctor thinks it is constipation. My dh wants us to go to behavorial doctor. Did anybody try it?

Re: behavorial specialist?

Have you tried prune juice?? Raisins they have those ones covered in chocolate or vanilla yogurt, dried apricots. Have you tried covering say broccoli with melted cheese. Mixing finely chopped spinach into spaghetti with meat sauce?

On the flip side is there anything stressfull happening at home? If there isn't why would a develpomental pediatrician be needed? Most kids regress in progress at one point or another

Why does she need a "behavorial doctor"? Who is that, btw? A psychologist?

That she doesn't like veggies is perfectly normal. It is very difficult for a young child to like veggies and fruit, but you should keep trying, without forcing.

Does she drink enough water? What kind of diet is she eating? Too much soft drink, too much candy, too much dairy, too many snacks, eating food in front of the TV set, lack of physical exercise and sleep - all of this can lead to constipation and cramps. I am afraid she needs routines at home rather than going to that doctor. My opinion.

Is this the same 4-yr-old who poops in her pants and tells lies? Maybe she does need a bit of professional intervantion. IMO, this never hurts and also teaches you to cope better.
