My three year old won't go for a poop!
My three year old daughter is driving me and my partner crazy with this problem. She won’t go for poop for days. Then after about four days she starts writhing around the floor in
pain, it's so bad that I can’t go out anywhere if she hasn’t done a poo.
I took her to the docs but all I got was ‘it’s normal’ and they gave me lactulose which
hasn’t changed anything, it just means that her poo isn’t as hard. But her poo isn't really hard anyway. On top of
this she won’t drink, so we are having to bribe her to drink and
poo it’s doing
my head in.
When she does finally go for a poo it doesn't hurt her and she'll say how
much better she feels, so we tell her the next time she feels like she needs to
poo she should just do it and she says she will but she doesn't and the whole cycle starts again.
Just some more info: She will wee on the potty (her own one
only). She will only poo in pull ups and not on the potty.
If anyone else has gone through the same thing please tell me what to do.
