Hello Ira Eomeoni,
Microlax contains sodium citrate, sodium lauryl sulfoacetate, sorbitol, PEG 400. These materials function as enemas to soften the stool, so they are often used as constipation therapy. The use of this type of enema can be for children and can be done at home.
Read the instructions for use on the medicine packaging. It is easier to enter the medicine when the child is fast asleep, but the effect is that the child can have direct bowel movements at that time, so it can be applied with pampers for a while. Turn the lid of the medicine packaging, squeeze the tube a little so that some of the medicine comes out and flatten the tip of the mouth of the package which will be inserted later into the butt hole as a lubricant and reduce pain. In children aged <3 years, the tip of the microlax inserted is only half of it. Enter then point to the back and squeeze all of the medicine. Pull the tip of the microlax out of the anus, while still pressing the packaging. Wait for about 5-20 minutes to see any stools come out. Don't overuse the drug, because the hard plastic packaging ends can irritate the child's anal area.
To overcome constipation in children, there are many other ways, namely by providing foods that are high in fiber (fruits and vegetables), provide adequate drinking, encourage children to exercise to trigger bowel movements. Familiarize children to go to the toilet after eating because at that time usually the stimulus for the largest bowel movement.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
