Constipation in children

Constipation in children is very common – 1 in 3 children will suffer – but it is often not recognised and even when it is, it is poorly managed.

The videos on this page are for parents and children to share key messages on:

  • recognising the symptoms
  • treating constipation
  • using laxitives
  • keeping bowels healthy
  • managing Constipation in children with a learning disability

Special thanks to Brenda Cheer, ERIC Nurse at ERIC, The Children’s Bowel & Bladder Charity for giving us permission to share these videos.
