What is Children’s Constipation?

Constipation is the difficulty in passing bowel movements or infrequent bowel movements. Symptoms of constipation are felt when the intestines do not work properly. When the intestines take too long to absorb fluids, this causes the accumulation of dry and hard stools. Because of this, children find it difficult to pass stools. Small amounts of feces come out. Children have to sit in the toilet for hours to pass stool. Due to constipation, the stool becomes hard and smooth less.
