am I doing the right thing? mixing natural suplements with Miralax
Finally I am writing a post about Santiago and his poop. This poop thing is driving me crazy
little backgroud: santiago is one of the loves of my life and has SB (LMM). He is almost 20 months, weights 20 pounds and it is not being catheterized . He has always struggle with constipation but lately has been out of control. I finally decided to give him Miralax, but I hate myslef for doing so. It has done its work, I’ve used him for clean-outs only. However, if I dont use it he is backed up again.
I started giving him Fruiteze and helped only for a couple of days, he started to get constipated again, I tried to give him more, plus , he takes D-mannose and probiotics. Nothing worked and he didnt go for 4 days and I panic. Back to the Miralax route. before that we tried diet, and molasses and prune juice …oh goshhh, this is very exhausting,
Since I started giving him Miralax again, I also introduce Magnesium Citrate. So I dont know if Miralax or magnesium did the trick. He has gone several times a day, peanut butter consistency, but (sorry about the description the stool is not tick is very thin when it comes out) and it seems that he doesn’t finish when he goes since when I clean him up I can still see poop inside,waiting to come out.
I DO really want to stop giving him miralax and only give him natural suplements. But this kid of mine, gets tired of the same taste or same things very easy and gives up so quickly. is it bad that I am mixing the miralax with the natural stuff? how and when do I get rid of miralax and leave the natural ones? should I increase dosage: here is my current routine and I am open to hear suggestions
