DD had her urology checkup a couple weeks ago and her urologist said that we need to get her chronic constipation under control - it's contributing to her UTIs. Anyway, he strongly recommended polyethylene glycol (MiraLax, Lax-A-Day, RestoraLax or generic). It does not create bowel dependence, there are no stimulants and it works like a freaking charm. DD is now having skinny, soft poops every day but no sudden urgency or diarrhea!!!! I highly recommend it
Ohhhhh will have to look into that!!! Is it over the counter or prescription?

You know, it's funny, but just about 10 days ago I added 1/4 tsp per day to my cat's plethora of constipation remedies and we're having success here, too. lol I'm so glad that it's working for her.
Erin, I do not think it's safe to use in pregnancy. I Googled it and could not find anything that said it was safe, although your doctor might say something different.
Thanks for the info! Victoria's been okay lately, but she does have bouts with constipation, so I will keep that in mind.
