I’ve become inured to regular use of the word “poop.” Ain’t parenting glamorous? Oh come on, it’s part of life. As the book says, Everybody Poops.
Er, sort of. Because poop is one of the hardest (no pun intended) things for a lot of kids to adjust to leaving in the potty, I shared my PediaLax story awhile back here on Inside Out.
New to the shelves at your pharmacy, it’s an over-the-counter helper that not only works but is markedly more child-friendly than a big bottle of fiber capsules. And to drive that home, the folks at Fleet (yes, the enema people) have come up with Pedia-Lax Penguin, a cuddly buddy for kids going through a hard time (yes, pun intended there).
And I have one to give away to a mom who thinks her little munchkin could really use a friend. Additional winners will each walk away with a sample of PediaLax – either a box of the quick dissolve strips or the watermelon chewables.
