*GASP* I can't believe I did that!

Seriously, I have a confession to make: Today, I bought something I knew I had a coupon for, but didn't use the coupon (because it was at home, 150 miles away). Yes, that's right, I said it...Phew, I feel better now (but only just a little).

My son has been dealing with some chronic constipation issues for about 2 weeks now. We stopped diluting his apple juice, thinking that would solve it...it didn't. Then, I tried putting Karo syrup in his juice, which worked for about 1 poop, but then he was back to "bunny pellets" So, today, before we got back in the car to travel home from our overnight vacation, I walked to the drug store & purchased some Metamucil to put in his cup. It was on sale for $5.99 and I knew at home I had a $1 coupon I could be using, but HAD to have it, so I just sucked it up & made the purchase. I rationalized it to myself that it was OK not to use the coupon, because at least I would still get to submit it for the Caregiver's Marketplace rebate.

If you didn't think I have issues before, no doubt you think that now!

My children never suffered from constipation but my SIL's oldest did and she used Miralax for him. It always worked within an hour and she loved it.

I also saw an advertisement in a recent Parent & Child magazine for Pedia-lax Fiber Gummies. "A delicious way to help kids stay regular." Check with your pharmacist.
