Constipation is a common problem that can make kids miserable. It can be tough to talk about, but constipation is a big back-to-school problem. When it’s time for #2, kids might be too shy to ask to use the restroom and avoid going altogether, which can lead to a common, but uncomfortable, issue: constipation. If your child is constipated, you know how distracting that can be.
Every time my eldest daughter is suffering from constipation, I initially take the home remedy route. I make sure that she's getting enough fluids and add more fiber into her diet. I let her eat either apples or pears. I also limit her fast food or junk food intake. Most importantly, I make sure she gets into the habit of regular bowel movements after a meal. If those natural remedies mentioned above aren’t working for you, you may need to try a laxative or stool softener.
Do you know that 65% of parents (of children aged 2 – 11) admit to treating their children’s constipation with an adult laxative? But there have been reports of sides effects in children, like behavioral and speech issues, resulting from one of the main ingredients in adult laxatives. Therefore, pediatric specialist, Dr. Nina Shapiro, urges parents to choose treatment options that are specifically made for children, like Pedia-Lax®.
Pedia-Lax® is the only pediatric brand offering a full line of laxative products that are fast, safe and specifically made just for kids to help support digestive health and ease constipation. Pedia-Lax® products are available in a variety of forms to meet a child’s specific needs.Pedia-Lax® Chewable Tablets are formulated for kids ages 2-11, come in a tasty watermelon flavor and provide quick relief (within 30 minutes) and last up to 6 hours. They offer a gentle relief without the painful cramping sometimes associated with laxatives.
My daughter prefers taking this instead because it's chewable and she likes the tastes compared to the liquid ones. I highly recommend this product to every parent who has to deal with constipated children. Note: Make sure to read the dosage chart as you are to give 1-3 tablets (2-6 yrs. old) and 3-6 tablets (6-12 yrs. old.)
