This cure for constipation will work on anyone, from babies to the elderly.
Constipation is when you have to go but "it" won't come out. If you are willing to wait long enough, your own body may soften things up or you could wait for a laxative to work.
There is a harmless procedure that is very quick. We'll use the baby as an example. Dip a Q-tip into a bottle of mineral oil (this can be found in any drug store). Insert the oily Q-tip very gently into the baby's rectum just a little - he has a very little rectum. (Older folks can probably go the entire length of the Q-tip just fine and may want to do this two or three times.) Keep the baby lying down for about a half hour. This allows the oil to soften the stool. Older folks should lie down and wait as long as possible. Older kids will probably prefer to do this themselves.
Constipation can be caused by a poor diet or low fluid intake. But, even a good diet can be quickly ruined by a few items. Cheese, peanut butter, bananas, and tootsie rolls will stop you up, but eating any of these alone might be okay for you. Eating a combination of these can be too much for most people. If you simply love peanut butter and cheese sandwiches and want to have a banana or tootsie rolls for a snack, have a nice bowl of beans with dinner.
It is also important to drink lots of water.
