    This is the one I used for a while. I added a banana to it to help with the flavor. I also added yogurt or milk, so you could substitute with rice milk and/or soy yogurt. Another trick is to leave...

    Miralax is also really good. I have to give it to my 3 1/2 year old. It isn't absorbed by the body, and it does the job! My gastro had recommended it for me (it's even safe for pregnant women). ...
