See the frequency of motions in a week. Evaluate for any physiological or pathological cause. Mostly dehydration and dietary habbits are main culprit etiology. Rarely hirschprung's disease which requires pediatric surgeon's opinion.

Constipation of 1 and 1/2(18 month) year old child is not a disease. Advice for parents -- Maintain the better way to proper feeding. Dehydration Or electrolytes imbalance. Dietary supplements and also multivitamin minerals and antioxidant regularly. Keeps healthy diet and drinks no constipation. Use stool softeners medicine or drugs acting on colonial and rectum, I think you will get the better treatment and management.

Thank you Sir@Dr. Narendra Kumar .

Lactulose fiber solution ( Duphalec) but u 1st try to remove constipation by natural way ie.fibre rich diets, milk with banana, boiled green leafy vegetables etc. If child passes Stool satisfactorily 3 to 4 times a wk then it is not constipation & need not to be treated. If needed then may insert glycerin child size suppository locally in anal canal stat & sos.

Adequate hydration, glycerine suppository if child has not passed stool for 3-4 days. If it is chronic, suspect Hirschsprung's disease n refer the child to pediatrician.

Liquid deit . Plenty of water as body weight Creamaffin Pink SOS Glycerine suppository if essential USG abdomen

Avoid milk feeding Healthy diet Toilet training Increase intake of sweet Glycerin suppository alternate day If not releaf give neotonic enema

Adequate hydration... advice to have fruits and green leafy vegetables

Does the patient need any medication sir?
