    My son is still having a hard time doing number 2! Can someone please help us?

    Ever since our son was born on May 9, 2012 he has had a difficult time using the bathroom. Doctors have told us that he will "eventually" grow out of this. In the meantime they prescribed him a large bottle of Myralax. With no change. Now he's turning three soon and still walks around the house moaning, pinching his butt cheeks together, crying and unable to walk. His stomach is distended mildly. But it has been 2 weeks that my son has been trying unsuccessfully to use the bathroom.
    We have tried Homeopathic options as well and this has been unsuccessful as well.
    Anyone that can offer some relief for my son, please let us know....ASAP We are in the Georgia area.
    Thank you
