Laxatives and stool softeners are often viewed as different products that are used for treating constipation. In fact, laxatives are of different types, which include stool softeners too. So stool softeners are also laxatives. However, they differ from other types of laxatives in their mode of action and effectiveness.
Light green stools can be result of taking too much of iron in diet. You may need to cut down on the iron tonics or supplements under the advice of doctors or change the child's diet of high iron.
Instead of relying completely upon the above-mentioned remedies, it is recommended that you make necessary changes in your kid's diet. Include lots of fibrous fruits and vegetables in the diet. The reason why high-fiber diet is often recommended to relieve constipation is that, many fibers like pectin, polysaccharides, etc., found in fruits and vegetables are not digested by the body. As a result, they are flushed out of the colon and eliminated from the body. However, these undigested fibers have a tendency to absorb excess water from the colon, thereby rendering softness to the stool. Drinking too much of cow's milk can also cause constipation in babies. Apple or prune juice can help to relieve the problem in babies.
