Stimulants such as glycerin secure enough to use for small children and infants.

Glycerin is like a candle that can relieve constipation by stimulating the rectum and "lubricate" the intestinal wall so that dirt can be removed more easily.

However, be sure to use stimulants only when strictly necessary.

Using these substances on a regular basis can make babies become dependent and can not defecate without the help of these substances.

2. Use a thermometer

Use a rectal thermometer that is approved for use in children.
