Living with bowel problems can be difficult. Not only does this affect the child, but this impacts the routines and life of the whole family. As a parent, helping a suffering child may be challenging. Many parents of children with bowel dysfunction struggle far too long with dietary and stool changing medication, such as laxatives or stool thickeners, without satisfactory results. 

There is a workable solution for your child. Transanal Irrigation is a successful therapy for many children living with bowel dysfunction.

TAI restores a bowel routine, and helps your child to regain control of the time and place for going to the toilet. TAI for children is a safe technique for effectively emptying the bowel, which promotes the evacuation of stool by passing lukewarm water into the bowel.

TAI is a successful therapy for many children living with bowel dysfunction. TAI restores a healthy bowel routine, and helps your child to regain control of when and where to go to the toilet.

With that, the inconvenience of accidents eventually disappears, and both you and your child can start living your life without constantly thinking about the bowel and toilet needs.

In short, when the bowel works, life works. However, TAI may feel strange or intimidating in the beginning, and it may take some time to get it right. As the stomach and bowel is a complicated system, it needs time to adjust to new routines. But it will be worth it in the long run.
