To assist your childís body in more easy
and routine bowel evacuation, have your child drink lots
of liquids. Stay clear of caffeine (including teas and
sodas). Liquids help flush the system and soften the
fecal matter. Cranberry juice is good for the bladder as
well as easing the bowel evacuation.
Your child should also eat a lot of fresh fruits,
vegetable, and cereals. Exercise will help the body as a
while stay in better shape, but in terms of controlling
continence, it will assist in more controlled bowel
evacuations as well. Exercise helps to keep a bowel fit!
In creating a routine for your child to follow, and
hopefully for your childís body to adapt to, meals
should be eaten at the same time each day. Bladder and
bowel emptying should be regularly scheduled as well.
