Constipation is usually temporary and treatable. With the proper diet and fluid intake, the child can have more regular bowel movements.

If it is not treated, constipation can become worse. If the stool stays inside the lower intestinal tract, it keeps getting larger, firmer and drier. This makes it more painful to pass, and the child will be more likely to hold back the stool.
