    Default DD refuses to p00!

    DD was never a big pooer but would at least go every 2-3days!
    Today is day 5 of her holding it in!!! We are at our wits end! She only drinks water, we have given her laxatives & stool softener the last 2 days and still nothing!
    Booked to see dr later this arvo!
    She says she us scared to go and jeeps crying & hunching over saying her stomach hurts! We can't get her to sit on toilet for more than a minute!
    She us 4&1/2.

    Has anyone elses children done this?
    Is there anything we can do to help her?
    We have over hauled her diet to high fiber and more water!!!!!

    how did you go at the doctors?

    I hate to say this because i know youve done what you thought was best

    but i wouldnt be suprised if the reason her belly is hurting is because of the over load of laxatives, stool softeners, extra water and excessive fiber.

    for anyone not used to these things (and especially a child) all these things together will definatly make your belly ache. she will definatly poo, and alot, but as to when is anyones guess.

    If DD 'holds it in' on me, i give her the 'brown sugar remedie', 1 teaspoon of brown sugar to 60 mls of water. It sounds rediculos i know! I was hesitant to try it myself, but it works EVERY time and i get a p00 within 10 minutes.

    i hope your LO is feeling better now, hugs again x

    Is she regularly like this? I have some advice but it really only applies if she suffers with anxiety about the toilet

    She has finally pooed twice so didn't take her to drs.
    Yes she has a fear of pooing :-(

    Thanks for the sugar tip :-) will try that next time - hopefully won't have to, but not going to hold my breath.
