...summer vacations can wreak havoc on a child’s digestive system.

Tummy Calm, maker of a popular solution for digestive upset in children, sees a rise in demand for stomach remedies during vacation season. Made by TJL Enterprises, the creator of the popular infant remedy Colic Calm, Tummy Calm can be administered as symptoms appear, making it the perfect take-along for family vacations.

As Jacqueline Lawrence, Tummy Calm’s creator, points out, summer vacations can wreak havoc on a child’s digestive system. Parents, trapped with children in airports during long flight delays or in cramped cars for hours, can become frustrated with the fussiness that comes from their children’s digestive upset.

“Nothing can ruin the fun of a family vacation like unhappy children,” said Lawrence. “Tummy Calm is an easy way to handle your child’s digestive upset, which can be a very common occurrence on trips.”

Stomach problems can be especially prevalent during summertime trips, where spending large amounts of time in excessively hot conditions can do a number on the body’s internal furnace. While many adults tend to eat lighter foods to combat that feeling, children gravitate toward junk foods like ice cream and potato chips, especially while spending hours at the hotel pool or on the beach.

One of the biggest disruptions to a family’s digestive system during summer trips is the change in daily routine. Many families have a relatively fixed eating schedule each week, with breakfasts and lunches comprising of many of the same foods. Additionally, for a family accustomed to having most meals prepared at home, restaurant food may contain ingredients parents usually don’t incorporate into meals—butter instead of margarine, for instance, or shortening instead of vegetable oil.

To help reduce the effects of this change in routine, experts advise guiding your children toward making healthy choices, even while on vacation. The problem with that is that healthy options aren’t always available at amusement parks or by the pool. Tummy Calm comes in a portable two-ounce bottle that can easily be stored in the pocket of a beach bag or purse. By having it always on hand, parents can administer dosage on site, as soon as children complain of symptoms.

Lawrence points out that carbonated beverages can also upset a child’s alkaline-acid balance of the gastric lining, leading to problems with digestion. It’s not unusual for parents to lift their “no sodas” rule during vacation, but Lawrence cautions that spending hours in the sun without water can also inhibit digestion, especially if those beverages contain caffeine. Even at amusement parks and pools where sodas are provided free of charge, parents should limit carbonated beverage intake and encourage children to drink water.

Tummy Calm is available at retailers throughout the United States, along with the company’s website, With all-natural ingredients and no sugar, alcohol, yeast, gluten, or other products that might cause stomach upset, Tummy Calm ( is a great tool for parents to take along on vacation this year.
