    Default Need some ideas to stop toddler pooping pellets

    My 2 year old has been pooping pellets now for over a week. I did not think anything of it as there is no straining etc but no thinking it isn't right anymore.

    She drinks plenty of water but what are some good snack ideas that have fibre etc to try and get it back to normal.

    Also I am trying toilet training but that doesn't seem to be happening and I am wondering if she is trying to hold it in.

    Some ideas would be fabulous

    Kiwi fruit usually does the trick..
    Prunes are great as well. If she doesn't like prunes you could always steam it and use is as a sauce over her yoghurt or something.

    I haven't tried it, but a teaspoon of coconut oil is supposed to work wonders We've had great success with stone fruit, which is great as it's in season at the moment!

    Corn on the cob does it here without fail. She goes the very next morning. Nothing else worked for DD but extra water and corn

    My BIL is a paed and he swears by plain pop corn. We tried it with DS on the weekend and it worked wonders! Pears and other fruit just weren't cutting it.

    DS1 loves chilli con carne. I add 2 tins of red kidney beans to it. The next day he normally does 2 poos.

    If you're trying to TT and she's not that into the idea so is trying to hold onto it that will definitely cause what you've described as the poo will just sit in her bowel and the moisture and water will be leached from it
