We have a poop problem in our house. Not to go into too many graphic details, but my toddler doesn’t like to poop. So, she holds until we have a painful issue, which reinforces her not liking to go. (A common problem in toddlers, so I am told by my pediatrician.)
I know that our problem is not diet, it is willpower, but even so I do everything in my power to feed her fiber to help (raspberries are her fav fruit and dried fruit her fav snack – yeay!). So when I first saw Pedia-lax Fiber Gummies in an ad, I knew we had to try them!
Besides our ummm… issues, fiber is a good thing in all of our diets. And the experts agree… most of us don’t get enough. Since kids are no exception, especially picky eaters Fiber Gummies are like a dream come true! Plus, they are actually yummy! For real. We also give my daughter a daily Flinstone’s gummy, and I find those to be hard and smell medicinie. The Fiber Gummies are soft and sweet – really more like a treat. (Yep, tasted them – ate a couple actually.) So much so my daughter asks for her daily gummies, which helps mommy remember to give them to her!
I wish I could tell you our poop problem has gone away, but it remains a problem. However, we have installed a reward system for going, and she is going a bit better. Fiber Gummies a miracle fix, nope. But good for her and another way for mommy to feel like she is helping.
