I had an opportunity to review Pedia-lax fiber Gummies!
A little bit about Constipation in Children!
The American Academy of Pediatrics outlines normal frequency of bowel movements for children.
Physical symptoms of constipation to look for, which may include:
•less than three bowel movements a week
•hard stools that are difficult to pass
•cramps, stomachaches or nausea
•rectal bleeding (This symptom might be a sign of a serious condition, consult your pediatrician)
•urinary incontinence, frequent urination or bed-wetting (These symptoms might be signs of a serious condition, consult your pediatrician)
•soiling (often confused with diarrhea)
In addition to physical symptoms, look for changes in behavior like a decrease in appetite. Chances are they'll be cranky. And while they might act like they need to use the bathroom - crossing their legs, making faces, wriggling and squirming - they're often trying to hold it in to avoid the pain of going.
A lot of times kids don't get as much fiber as they need! By giving your child 3 pedia-lax gummies a day, gives your child as much fiber as 21 spears of Asparagus, or 2 boiled baked potatoes(with skin), or 1 cup of corn.
These taste great according to my nephew. We have only be able to give these to him a couple of times because he has had the stomach bug, and didn't need them. These gummies really do work. It is recommended that these gummies are given to children 2-11(3 times a day).
