We also have a herbal formula from our herbalist called "LB". Its a liquid from Natures sunshine. Its a natural laxative, we do give it to her occasionally as well.
Unfortunetly for us, Miralax is the only thing that works. She is on a daily probiodic and we've tried prunes, pears, Flaxseed shakes, high fiber diet, etc. . Miralax is the only thing that works.
Thank you. The Little Tummies laxative main ingredient is senna which is the same main ingredient that's in the Nature's Sunshine product you give your little one. It is seeming to be less effective over time with my little one. Does your lo poop every day?
