Laxatives are used for loosening stools, so that they can easily move through the colon and/or increase the frequency of bowel movements. A laxative could be a drug or a natural remedy like prune juice. As far as drugs are concerned, laxatives can be of different types. They include bulk-forming agents, stool softeners, stimulants, lubricants and osmotics. Though they all aim at relieving constipation, their course of action differs.
Constipation can be a frustrating problem for adults and children alike. Constipation in young ones, especially babies is even more annoying, as they cannot express the symptoms. Naturally, the frequency of bowel movement and the texture of stool, are the only means of identifying if your child is constipated or not. Low-fiber diet, inadequate fluid intake, are some of the common causes of constipation in little ones. In adults, stool softeners are often used to cure this digestive problem. However, while using a stool softener for children one has to be extra careful, and as far as possible, rely upon natural remedies.
The ingredients in the stool softener do not act as laxative on the digestive system. They only make the stool soft, so as to pass it easily. However, these ingredients have the potential to cause stomach or intestine cramps. Drinking 6-8 glasses of water, while you are on stool softeners, helps to relieve stomach cramps.
