Anorectal Malformations and Hirschsprung’s Disease
Anorectal malformations and Hirschsprung’s Disease are rare conditions that children may be born with. The leaflets in this section help to explain these.
Constipation and Soiling
Constipation is one of the most common medical conditions affecting children and young people. It can have a significant impact on daily life for families, particularly if their child is soiling.
The information in this section will help you to understand more about constipation, how it is treated and what you can do to help your child.

Bowel problems in children and young people that are not caused by constipation or a problem that is present at birth include toddler diarrhoea, children only wanting to poo in a nappy and smearing of poo.
All these problems can feel difficult for families to manage. The leaflets in this section are designed to help you understand these issues and help you to manage them.
