She began with a teaspoon I don't know if this is dangerous. I raised 4 children and never used any type of stool softener or laxative nor do I use them now. I just can't understand this--What can I do? The mom assures me the doctor has approved this practice.

Either way your daughter is going to have to talk to the pediatrician about what might work best and get reassured that this Miralax is fine to use daily.

I am not an expert so make sure she consults the doctor.
