Active ingredients

glycerin 2.8g

Purpose

Hyperosmotic laxative

Uses

■ for relief of occasional constipation ■ this product usually produces bowel movement in 1/4 to 1 hour

Directions

Directions Single daily dosage (per 24 hours) Children 2 to under 6 years: 1 suppository per day or as directed by a doctor Children under 2 years: consult a doctor Administering the laxative: Caution: Remove Orange Protective Shield Before Inserting. Hold unit upright, grasping bulb of unit with fingers. Grasp orange protective shield with other hand, pull gently to remove. With steady pressure, gently insert tip into rectum with a slight side-to-side movement, with tip pointing toward navel. Discontinue use if resistance is encountered. Forcing the tip can result in injury. Insertion may be easier if child receiving suppository bears down as if having a bowel movement. This helps relax the muscles around the anus. Squeeze bulb until nearly all liquid is expelled. While continuing to squeeze the bulb, remove tip from rectum and discard unit. It is not necessary to empty unit completely. The unit contains more than the amount of liquid needed for effective use. A small amount of liquid will remain in the unit after squeezing. Left-side position: Place child on left side with knees bent and arms resting comfortably. Knee-chest position: Have child kneel, then lower head and chest forward until left side of face is resting on surface with left arm folded comfortably.

The product worked as intended, so my 2 stars is because the discomfort it put my daughter in. She started screaming and crying said she couldn’t sit down and that her butt hurt. What was about 5 minutes felt like 40. She finally did #2 but not without a struggle, still had a hard time passing it and it was very hard feeling.

WOW! Can’t recommend this product enough. Our 3 year old had just started potty training and was very constipated. Complained that her stomach hurt/crying a lot but wouldn’t go own her own. Gave her this and she pooped within 2 minutes. She did freak out at first, like some of the other reviews said, but it didn’t last long. She was instantly relieved. BUY THIS!!

18 mo hadnt gone poo in 4 days and had been consistently constipated for weeks. Decided to give this a try since miralax was not working. It worked within 5 minutes. I swear those were the worst five minutes. My toddler was screaming in agonizing pain. Face was so red, she was crying, and she did not want me to touch her. Yes the product worked, but the appilcator tip was not lubricated as stated, and the shape is not the best. Such a bad experience. Caused so much discomfort because of the burning.

Usually don’t really leave reviews but this worked instantly. My two-year-old had constipation for a few hours and he would whine because he couldn’t go. I waited a few hours to see if he would go on his own trying to give him natural things because I usually don’t like to use medicine. because he was in pain I felt bad and I wanted to help him so I saw this had really good reviews mostly I gave it to him it’s a little hard to do with one person you can have someone else help you I would recommend it just to hold them down it is a bit traumatizing but this worked instantly! I literally gave this to my toddler wiped him put his diaper on went to throw the bulb away in the trashcan I thought it didn’t work because there was liquid but I assumed it was the liquid that came out but I thought I missed by the time I walked to the kitchen and went back to the room he had already went poop! Full diaper! I highly recommend getting this for your little one if you need it I do recommend it as well if you are able to if not I did it on my own!

Wow works quicker than the description on the package. Description states 15 - 60 mins but it was almost instant for us. I wished it softened up the stools a bit more but it worked for us. It is still uncomfortable for the little one but helps so much.

This is a potty training lifesaver. My daughter holds hers in for days. Finally had to break down and give this to her. When it says instant, it is! I felt better knowing she went and I am hoping this helps her realize it’s ok to go on the potty.

These do work, but beware that your child's pain will likely intensify after application. My (2yo) daughter was uncomfortable before I used these, then immediately after the pain become so intense she was sweating and could not sit still. She was frantically moving her little hands just to calm herself. However, within minutes she was able to go and felt instant relief (it softened her stool for easy passing also). Glad we used them, however expect them to feel worse before they feel better. Just be ready to comfort your baby and don't get scared that you hurt them like I did. Chances are you applied it properly. (:

SAHMommy - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
Used this for my 3 yo after being constipated for 4 days. The applicator to insert caused him discomfort, but within a few seconds after inserting, the burning started and so did the screaming and crying! I have never seen him in this much pain before and there was nothing I could do for 20 minutes! The product worked, but I would never put him through that again! I feel like it left us both traumatized.

My 3yr old hadn't pooped in 4 days. He has some issues with constipation so we try to give miralax a couple times a week, but lately he seemed to be fine so we eased off. Yesterday he tried to poop and didn't. Tonight he was trying to poop for 5hrs straight. Started 2hrs before bedtime, basically tried nonstop for 2hrs with little breaks, and would just lay on the floor in between trying. Definitely not his normal energetic self. And then kept waking up because he had to go. Finally around midnight I decided we couldn't let this go on any longer and we either had to go to the doctor or try this suppository. He was NOT a fan, but within less than 5minutes he went so much! I was worried whether it would work because when i did it only about half the liquid came out, but it was enough! This was so worth it to give him almost instant relief. The applicator did look a bit large, but insertion wasn't an issue, although he definitely wasn't a fan. 10/10 would use again if we got to this point. Saved us a trip to the ER

My 1 yr old began experiencing constipation when she started to eat more meals and snacks and nurse less. Used this to give her some relief from hard stools. It worked immediately. Less than 15 minutes. Help your baby through these transitions. It was worth it to not see her cry to attempt a bowel movement. And it is less than a doctor's visit.
