Fiber Gummies – Let’s talk about poop!

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.

  1. My daughter had the same issue. She fought “going”. She loves prunes and triscuits so fiber was never a problem. She eventually got over the whole thing, and I think it actually helped her with potty training.

  2. The Disney Princess Gummy Vitamins are softer and sweeter- she might like them better if you haven’t tried them.

    Oh, and Xylitol (the sweetener) is actually also a mild laxative…just not as strong as sorbitol and mannitol- so don’t eat tooo many!

  3. Okay, you had me at poop 🙂 My daughter would go every other day when she was little and she’d turn red and sweat, etc. We would give her grape juice, sometimes something from the doctor, and water. She just grew out of it though.

  4. Certainly a very interesting post. LOL!

    My kids are just a wee bit older then the recommended age or I’d look into these for my kids too.

    Thanks for the review.
