  • prune juice, pedia-lax. the pedia-lax is a suppository and after just one use it works. my 3yr old son had corrective sugery to fix a hernia and fluid in the sac; after the surgery he didn't pass a bm and was in pain, so on the third day i called both his pcp office and the office of the doc that preformed the surgery and both suggested an over the counter bm producer that was $11 + which i didn't have $ for at the time; so pedia-lax won because it was $2.59! the doc told me not to depend on it; but after 1 use he didn't have any more problems having a bm!!! go with your gut, its your baby, just don't over do it and don't always depend on them because food and certain juices should it naturally; make sure you give her fiber rich foods!!!
