Hi I've just signed up and was really hoping for some advice please. My daughter is nearly 5 and has been on Movicol for about 2 years which she has half a sachet of daily. We cannot seem to get her into a pattern of going to the toilet however and she is constantly soiling her knickers. She's at school and so often I pick her up and she smells awful, I'm worried about other children noticing and making fun of her. She can go through periods where she's really good and all her pooing is done on the toilet but then for no reason she just starts messing herself and gets really stressed if I even mention sitting on the loo. It's stresses me out massively and I know it's not the right way but I let it show in the hope she'll reaslise and then just go to the toilet normally. I don't know how to deal with her toilet issue and why sometimes she will go and use it and sometimes she won't. We are having a particularly bad spell at the moment and I can't even count how many pairs of knickers I have chucked away this week. She'll happily poo in a pull up! Can anyone offer any advice please?
