I’m in desperate need of help/advice/support.. anything!
My daughter has just turned 3, we have been struggling with her holding in poos now since January. It started with a stomach bug which led to constipation, which led to her with holding poos. She would scream and scream in pain, had 2 lots of antibiotics as docs thought it could be an infection.
Doctors have put her on lactoluse, which we give her every other day to keep stools soft. We had a few good months and got potty trained For wees, but she was still really sensitive about pooing.
But then this last month things have gone rapidly down hill again, she screams so much when the poo is in her back passage, and is holding it in. She seems to be in so much pain but the doctors keep sending me away saying it’s ‘normal’
So my question is- is this normal!?????!!! Is there anyone else going through this, I’m at my wits end, her diet is terrible, she is so fussy and won’t eat hardly anything, she barely eats or drinks when we have a bad day, it’s so emotionally exhausting and frustrating!
