What Causes Constipation in Children

Constipation is extremely common in children and there are many potential reasons why the condition may have started. In some cases though, there is no obvious obvious reason behind why constipation is being experienced.

Some of the most common causes include:

  • a low fibre diet
  • not drinking enough fluids
  • feeling pressured during potty training
  • feeling worried or anxious

Constipation in children can create a vicious circle, as your child may not want to try to go for a poo because it hurts. Unfortunately though, the more your child holds back, the more constipated they are likely to get.

If you are concerned about your child having constipation, we will be happy to see you both at the earliest opportunity.

Our team are highly experienced in childhood constipation and will be able to provide you with the best advice and, if needed, treatment to ensure that your child is able to poo pain-free at the earliest opportunity.

We have clinics based in Dorking, Surrey and Wimbledon, London, meaning we are ideally placed to investigate and treat childhood constipation for patients in Surrey, Kent, and Southwest London, including Balham, Battersea, Brixton, Clapham, Earlsfield, Streatham, Stockwell, Tooting, Wandsworth, Chelsea, Earls Court, Fulham, Parsons Green, South Kensington, and West Brompton.
