Q.

Constipation and Creche gaurd

I have been giving my 2 yr old son creche gaurd for the past 3 weeks, since the creche gaurd, he complains about his no 2 and when I check his nappy there is nothing, he moans when he has to make a no 2.
Could it be the creche gaurd that caused it and what can i give him to help, as I have given him rooibos tea, prune purity

Creche guard does not usually cause constipation but it does seem to have affected your son. Stop the Creche Guard and rather give him a probiotic to boost his immunity. Probiflora Children's is a good choice.He can take it for 10 days every month for the winter months only.
