Disclaimer: I am not a medical professional. This is my personal experience and opinion of miralax.
Hello bloggies! This is a kind of an unusual post for me, but it's something I feel strongly about. If you have kids, you have probably heard of "miralax" which is a commonly prescribed laxative/stool softner. Unfortunately I have way more experience with this product than I'd like to admit. Parks has been on it off and on for over 2 years at the advice of more than one pediatrician. If you have experienced problems with stool witholding or chronic constipation, I know first hand how difficult it can be. Please watch the videos to hear our story, my thoughts on the "safety" of miralax and plenty of natural alternatives. Please spread the word about the alternatives if you know someone who is on miralax.
P.S. I'm not going to get into a debate here as to whether or not miralax is safe. It is my firm belief that the less chemicals we put into our bodies the better, even if the medical community says they are "safe". What I do want to do is help parents know there ARE other options, ones that your doctor probably won't bring up. Please comment accordingly.
