(HealthDay News)—Every child has different bowel habits, but certain signs may indicate a medical problem.

The University of Michigan Health System says parents should visit a doctor if:

  • The child is constipated for longer than a week, or the child's bowel movements are painful and require more than normal pushing.
  • The child has blood in the stool or has hemorrhoids.
  • The child has a leaking soft stool between bowel movements.
  • The child is vomiting or has a swollen belly.
