Constipation is usually a diet problem. The most important thing is to ensure that she eats food with enough fibre (fruit and vegetables) and not chips, sweets or cookies. Sometimes a short term laxative may be needed to help clear the problem, but laxatives are not the solution. Speak to your doctor or pharmacist.
