You may want to try reading through my short blog for children with her, telling the story of what happened when I withheld my poop as a child:


Hi there. I am no expert and have only just joined but I do have experience of this with my little girl who is almost 5. I use a step at the toilet for my little girl to push down onto with her feet.....we also blow bubbles at the same time. May be worth a try.....good luck, it's such a difficult problem isn't it......


She all so have never had a proper poo she only ever have a proper one when I do help her
