How to use this enema: Remove orange protective shield from enema Comfortip before inserting. With steady pressure, gently insert enema tip into rectum with a slight side-to-side movement, with tip pointing toward navel.

Forcing the tip into the rectum can cause injury (especially if your child has hemorrhoids. If enema tip causes rectal bleeding or pain, get immediate medical care. Squeeze bottle until nearly all liquid is gone. It is not necessary to empty the bottle completely, as it contains more liquid than needed. Remove Comfortip from rectum and keep child in position until urge to evacuate is strong (usually 1 to 5 minutes). Positions for using this enema: 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. If no urge is felt after 5 minutes of using, have your child try to empty bowel. Call a doctor promptly if no liquid comes out of the child’s rectum after 30 minutes because dehydration could occur. Additional liquids by mouth are recommended while taking this product. This product usually produces a bowel movement in 1-5 minutes. Carton sealed for safety.
