Q.

Constipation

Good Day Doctor

My 18 month old daughter, tends to suffer from constipation. She is currently on Nan 3, we have tried switching her to S26 but she refuses to drink a different type of milk.

What can we do do ease her constipation , since when she does a nr 2, we can see she finds is extremely difficult.

Please advise.
