I am a mum of two toddlers – Alex is 3 years old and David 2 years old. This week I received three emails asking about toddler constipation. So I decided to write a little about what I used when I had to deal with my children constipation. First if you have to get rid of you toddler constipation right away, I would suggest one of these natural constipation remedies for children. They worked for me. I used gentle laxatives, so try the most natural like I do.
1. Fleet Fleet Laxative – Pedia-Lax Liquid Glycerin Suppositories – Generally produces bowel movement in 1/4 to 1 hour. Liquid glycerine has a major advantage – you don’t have to wait for suppository to dissolve. So your toddler constipation is no longer a problem in less than an hour which is great especially during the night.
2. Pedia-lax Fleet Pedia-lax Probiotic Yums, 30 Count – The main advantage of these Probiotic Yums is that support natural digestive balance by recreates the good bacteria in your child’s digestive system. They have no artificial preservatives and no artificial colors. And I know that you are like me and like every mom that wants only what’s best for her child.
These were my short-term suggestions because I know how it is when you have to deal with your toddler constipation. And I would definitely take them with me if I would go in holiday.
On long-term I suggest a completely different direction. I am talking about some excellent toys for children’s regular exercises. They will have fun and help bowel movement in the same time:
Hape Wonder Walker – This is our star toy in the house for my 2 year old son. He really loves it and the toy has left no marks on walls and doors despite the repeated bangs which is great for parents. 🙂
Dirt Devil Junior Lights Sounds Upright Toy Vacuum Cleaner – This is my oldest son preferred toy as he is convinced that he is cleaning the house like I do.
The most important advantage of using these toys for toddlers with constipation is that they don’t actually feel like patients and they get rid of any frustration and any uncomfortable feeling. Toddler constipation solved with no stress.
