Other Description

Gluten free. Uses: For the prevention of dry, hard stools. For relief of occasional constipation. This product usually produces bowel movement in 12-72 hours. Poop should just happen. You know your child and you know when your child is having potty issues. It's not constipation yet, but hard, dry stools can easily lead to constipation. We can fix that. Pedia-Lax® liquid stool softener acts by drawing water into the stool, producing softer stools that are easier to pass. Softer stools may also ease straining and make it more comfortable for your child when going to the bathroom. Less straining makes for a happy child. A happy child makes for a happy parent. Pedia-Lax® liquid stool softener is fruit-punch flavored. We recommend mixing it with your child's favorite juice to help mask the naturally tart taste of the active ingredient. Orange juice is especially recommended. And to help maintain your child's good digestive health*, try Pedia-Lax® probiotic yums. Just one great-tasting strawberry bite daily delivers the same amount of good bacteria as in a full serving of yogurt. Money-saving coupon is printed on the inside of this carton.
