I will start by saying that this post is all about poop in a good way.

We purchased this product because our twin Victor was severely constipated from drinking regular milk. He is lactose intolerant. I tried to loosen his stool by a lubricated finger, giving him juice (which works 80% of the time)and actually putting warm water in his bottom. Nothing worked. When we woke up the next morning, he was in severe pain. Victor has never needed any kind of over the counter laxative in his 3 years.
I loved this product because it has two applications (read bottle carefully to get two applications)It worked beautifully in a matter of only 5 minutes.
How it works.
You remove the orange protective shield from the enema comfort tip before inserting
You gently insert the tip (I recommend more lube to ease baby) the package states that the tip is already lubricated. You squeeze the liquid slowly into the rectal area and you do not have to use all of the liquid. The bottle has extra liquid in it. You remove the tip from the rectum and let the baby remain on her knees or on the left side for a few minutes.
This product generally produces a bowel movement in 1-5 minutes
Within 30 seconds Victor started to poop a little liquid. Because he was in such pain. I put a diaper on him and let him straddle me in a sitting position on the floor. This allowed him to hug me while pooping. It hurt him pretty bad in the beginning but the poop just came out in a big chunk. It was not a messy, watery consistency and the saline made it easier to pass through him. After about 6 minutes, Victor was back to normal and a smile on his face. This was all that I needed to see that my little boy was feeling much better.
I hate nothing about this product.
This product is for ages 2+ years. This is a saline laxative that is latex free, soft flexible comfort tip.
2.25 fl oz. The cost was only $1.89 at the local grocery store in GA.
If this product does not work within 10 minutes, take your baby to the pediatrician. There will more than likely be more severe issues with your child.
