No matter how healthy a child might be things always come up, like a cough, runny nose, or constipation. The first six or seven months of my youngest son's life he seemed to always dealing with constipation. His pediatrician suggest I give him suppositories. Fleet is the #1 recommended brand by pediatricians, so my choice was easy. I bought a small can that came with 12 suppositories and it was cheap. Pedia-Lax provides quick and gentle relief for children 2-5. The bottle says it should produce a bowel movement in 1/4 to 1 hour and it does work fast. *Do not use this on children younger unless your doctor tells you to.* Here are the ingredients: active- hyperosmotic laxative inactive- edetate disodium, purified water, sodium hydroxide and stearic acid To store it recommends that you keep it away from excessive heat. I've always kept mine in the refrigerator. You should check on your bottle for the recommended dosage and use. The Fleet suppositories work great, it does just what it claims to do. If your child ever needs relief from constipation I recommend trying Fleet Pedia-Lax.
