Directions for Use: 

Left-side position: Place child on left side with knees bent and arms resting comfortably.
Knee-chest position: Have child kneel, then lower head and chest forward until left side of face is resting on surface with left arm folded comfortably.

Administering the laxative:

  • Hold unit upright, grasping bulb of unit with fingers.
  • Grasp orange protective shield with other hand, pull gently to remove.
  • With steady pressure, gently insert tip into rectum with a slight side-to-side movement, with tip pointing toward navel.
  • Discontinue use if resistance is encountered. Forcing the tip can result in injury.
  • Insertion may be easier if child receiving suppository bears down as if having a bowel movement. This helps relax the muscles around the anus.
  • Squeeze the bulb until nearly all liquid is expelled.
  • While continuing to squeeze the bulb, remove tip from rectum and discard unit.
  • It is not necessary to empty unit completely. The unit contains more than the amount of liquid needed for effective use. A small amount of liquid will remain in the unit after squeezing.
