Patient : My 18 month old son has been having very hard stools and recently he has a stool that is too large for him to push out. I have tried baths, fiber gummies, pedialax chewables, prune juice, the thermometer trick, Vaseline, and helping him push. Nothing seems to be working. I don't think I can give him an enema because you can see the stool but it wont come out. What can I do to help him?
