Hi my 5 year old daughter is withholding her poop for 2-3 weeks at a time and i am worried for her because ,when she poops it often is extremely painful for her and she cries for hours trying to push it out. When she dose get it out it is the size of a softball and then 20 mins later she will poop out 3 more the same size. She will also not poop un-less i make her by giving her a laxative. I have tried everything to make her go by her self. I have tried candy,bribing, giving in, and not saying anything. I do not know what to do this time as it has been 4 weeks since she had last gone and i have tried laxative and she did not go. She is also very bloated and having lots of gas. Also she is not potty trained so that might make a difference.
Thanks : )
