In this case as well, the nature of the stool plays an important part in identifying if your child is constipated or not. Constipated children usually pass large, hard stools, which cause a lot of pain to them. As a result, the child avoids bowel movement, since he associates it with pain. This leads to the pile up of waste materials in the body and aggravates the problem of chronic constipation in children. Stool softeners can be used to eliminate the problem of constipation in children. Polyethylene glycol 3350 is often prescribed by pediatricians for children with constipation, since it can be tolerated well by all kids. This is an odorless and colorless powder, which can be mixed with water. Docusate, Senokot, Bisacodyl, etc., are some of the stimulant laxatives, which can be safely administered for children. Metamucil is a good stool softener for toddlers in the age group of 2 to 5. Although, corn syrup is widely used as a natural stool softener, its use for children is not recommended due to certain risks associated with it.

It is a known fact that stool formation takes place in the large intestine. When the bile enters the large intestine, it eventually turns yellowish brown and then mixes with the stool. This is the reason why stool appears brown in color. However, if the bile and the stool formed move quickly out of the large intestine, it is unlikely that the bile will become yellow. So, with the bile color remaining the same (green), the waste matter also appears greenish-yellow during bowel movement.

When it travels down the intestine, the color changes from bright green to brown. During normal digestion, the process takes enough time for the bile to change color.
