An enema pushes fluid into the rectum to clear out stool or waste material with it when it exits the lower bowel.
Have your child sit on the toilet or potty chair to release the solution. Check what type of bowel movement he had (hard, formed or runny) and the amount of solution released.
Most of the enema solution should be released.
