5 ways to help your toddler poop regularly
Presented by our site and Culturelle®

If your toddler is pooping less than usual, or complaining of discomfort while pooping, he might be backed up.

To promote regularity:

Tip #1
Increase the fiber in your child's diet
High-fiber foods help keep things moving along

Tip #2
Offer a daily supplement with fiber to help restore regularity, and a probiotic to help keep the digestive system running smoothly*

Culturelle is the #1 pediatrician recommended brand†
Mix one packet into your child's favorite food or beverage
Helps restore regularity and keep the digestive systems running smoothly*
Works naturally with your child's body*

Tip #3
Offer lots of water
Have your child drink 32 ounces of water a day

Tip #4
Massage your toddler's belly
Start below the belly button, on your child's lower left side
Feel for firmness or a mass, apply gentle pressure for 3 minutes

Tip #5
Start a poop routine
Have your child spend 5 to 10 minutes on the toilet after breakfast and dinner
Squatting makes pooping easier (knees are higher than hips)
