Yes we did actually. Over 1000 signatures to send off. Just writing the cover letter now. Fingers crossed!
Just a quick comment on laxatives - my one struggled on lactulose. Caused quite a bit of cramping. (Did the same to me when I was given it after epidural - TMI? Sorry!).
We use osmolax (prescribed by the paed gastro) but you can also get it over the counter. I'd always talk to a doc before giving laxative to a bub but osmolax works a bit differently to lactulose in that it just pulls water into the bowel to soften up the stool to make it easier to pass. What I found remarkable about it was that wind was passed so much more easily and with no pain. She occasionally looks a bit shocked at the sounds / whirlwind coming out of her bot but that's about it for distress around the whole toilet business for us now. ;-)
Will keep you posted on the petition response!
Just thought I'd throw it in.
