How long does lactulose take to work in babies?
It may take a day or two before lactulose softens the stool enough for your child to pass it more comfortably. Continue to give lactulose to your child during this time. If there is no change after 2-3 days, contact your doctor for advice as you may need to try a different medicine or a higher dose of lactulose.
