In brief: Yes, but lower dose

Docusate (doss) is safe for children and it has pediatric dosing tables; do not give a child an adult dose.
I would check the medication insert or online at doss's site for this to most accurately dose for pediatrics. Otherwise, it is safe for use in children and I have given my daughter pediatric docusate before. I hope this helps!
