A word of advice for all new parents, if your toddler is having trouble with digestion - try Isabgol which is a natural vegetable (sort of) better than anything pharmacy has to offer.

More info about Isabgol

Isabgol is the husk obtained from Psyllium plant. It is a natural vegetable product obtained from the seeds of this plant by milling. This product is mainly used as a bowel regulator. Isabgol absorbs water and swells up to give increased bulk in the intestine. It also increases the moisture content of the stools. This promotes the normal peristaltic movements and the bowel mobility. Isabgol is the age-old medicine used in ayurveda for the treatment of problems associated with constipation. Most of the people do not get sufficient amount of fiber form the daily diet. As a result more than 75% of the population are overweight and have problems related to indigestion, gastritis, high cholesterol levels and some times may also be the cause for colon cancer.
