Constipation can be a frustrating problem for adults and children alike. Constipation in young ones, especially babies is even more annoying, as they cannot express the symptoms. Naturally, the frequency of bowel movement and the texture of stool, are the only means of identifying if your child is constipated or not. Low-fiber diet, inadequate fluid intake, are some of the common causes of constipation in little ones. In adults, stool softeners are often used to cure this digestive problem. However, while using a stool softener for children one has to be extra careful, and as far as possible, rely upon natural remedies.
The high iron content in these supplements is the reason why stool appears greenish in color. Although, iron requirements rise due to increased quantity of blood during pregnancy, there is a possibility that some amount of supplemental iron might not get absorbed. This malabsorption of iron prompts the body to eliminate iron salts during bowel movements. As a result, the stools get an unusual color that is seen in shades of green.
A stool analysis for color and texture variations as well as microbial content, is important for the detection and/or confirmation of several diseases. However, in most cases, such variations are simply due to dietary changes, and may not be a cause for concern.
