All children at some time or another will suffer from constipation. In fact, as a toddler, my daughter suffered from frequent constipation. We never found the culprit but it was scary seeing my little girl in such excruciating pain.
I was shocked to learn that 65% of parents of children aged 2-11) admit to treating their children’s constipation with an adult laxative. The issue with this is there are reports of side effects in children resulting from the main ingredient in adult laxatives. Some of these side effects include behavioral and speech issues.
Pediatric specialist, Dr. Nina Shapiro, urges all parents to stop the use of giving their children adult laxatives. Instead, she recommends parents choose treatments options specifically made for children, like Pedia-Lax®.
As a Mom, I am grateful that Pedia-Lax® is available to help relieve my children’s constipation. In fact, Pedia-Lax® is the only pediatric brand offering a full line of laxative products that are fast, safe and specifically made just for kids. They help support digestive health and also 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 and 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.
