Steps to Encourage a Child's Regularity + Pedia-Lax® Giveaway

This post has been sponsored by Pedia-Lax®. All thoughts and reviews are my own.


Caring for your comes with a lot of concerns. When my daughter was a baby, I breastfed her and we were worried about constipation. Turns out we were wrong, but knowing the signs and knowing how to avoid it are key. Staying regular isn't always easy, but these simple steps help support good gastrointestinal health so your kids can be #1 at going #2.



1. Drinking plenty of water can help regulate constipation.

2. Encourage high-fiber foods such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables.

3. Avoid giving your child large amounts of foods that could lead to constipation. Every child is different. Discuss dietary changes with your pediatrician.

4. Help your child set up a regular toilet routine.

5. For the younger child, reward them for attempting to have a bowel movement and for successfully having a bowel movement (sticker charts, etc.).

6. Be attuned to your child's body and behavior. For instance, if a younger child exhibits symptoms such as clenching buttocks or crossing legs, help them to the bathroom. If your child is soiling his underpants and hiding them in embarrassment, address the issue with your child in a sensitive manner.

7. Discuss your child's feelings with them in an empathetic manner. Children, at every age level, are embarrassed, scared and maybe even angry about their situation. Make them feel like they are being heard, understood and helped. Help them feel like they are in control by allowing them to be part of the development of a constipation management plan.

8. Parents should never show anger and frustration about the child's constipation to the child. Nor should the parent be overly obsessed with the child's bowel habits. These could be detrimental to the management of constipation and the well-being of the child.

9. If you notice any of the symptoms listed in "How do I know if my child is constipated?" contact your pediatrician as soon as possible. Do not wait for days to see if it will resolve on its own. The key to good management is recognizing the symptoms and addressing them before the situation worsens.

10. Encourage your child to be physically active. Exercise along with a balanced diet provides the foundation for a healthy, active life.


Sixty-five percent of parents (of children aged 2 – 11) admit to treating their children’s constipation with an adult laxative, but there have been reports of sides effects in children, like behavioral and speech issues, resulting from one of the main ingredients in adult laxatives. Therefore, pediatric specialist, Dr. Nina Shapiro, urges parents to choose treatment options that are specifically made for children, like Pedia-Lax®.

Pedia-Lax® is the only pediatric brand offering a full line of laxative products that are fast, safe and specifically made just for kids to help support digestive health and ease constipation. Pedia-Lax® products are available in a variety of forms to meet a child’s specific needs.

Pedia-Lax® Chewable Tablets are formulated for kids ages 2-11, come in a tasty watermelon flavor and provide quick relief (within 30 minutes) and last up to 6 hours. They offer a gentle relief without the painful cramping sometimes associated with laxatives.
