My daughter is nearly 5 and has suffered with constipation since she was 2. She has been on movicol for 2.5yrs and things had finally been going well for the last few months only requiring movicol from time to time and managing to poo on the toilet every other day.
She has just had a set back and only done 1 poo in the last week so we are increasing the movicol every day now to disimpact.
She is in a routine and sits on the toilet at the same time every day but nothing comes out (I think because she is withholding). I know it will come out once the movicol takes effect.
My question is about any tricks to help a 4/5 year old to understand it is so much better to just let the poo out! I've tried all sorts, poo stories, poo videos, rewards.
Just when I thought we had got there too!
Thanks in advance
