I have posted before asking for suggestions for natural stool softeners/laxatives for my dd who is holding her poop during this particular phase of PLing. Mamas suggested Miralax but I can't find it anywhere. Can anyone confirm that it is available in Canada? Is there an equivalent product here that I am missing?

Some moms on my other board use this. It is called PEG 3350, available in bulk quantities at Costco. However, it's also just begun being marketed as Lax-a-Day, sold at Shopper's Drug Mart. http://laxaday.com/index.php

Apparently you can also buy it online through the Sick Kids Specialty Food Shop.

Perfect, thanks! Just phoned our pharmacy and Lax-a-day was what he mentioned as well - he had never heard of miralax.

In Canada, I believe it's called RestoraLAX (I'm just learning about it now, myself).  Well.ca has this product & I'm just checking it out now.
