Hi my daughter is 2 1/2 and in her 4th week of potty training and doing super well!
She has been on movicol since June 2018 and we have been through disimpactions and playing with the dose to get it right and have now found that potty training and having a proper toileting routine has actually really helped her!
She is on 3 1/2 sachets a day at the moment which keep her poo’s nice and soft but not too sloppy that we get leakage or accidents so all good. And she has been going once or twice a day. She would have an off day with a bit of withholding but only one day in a week.
BUT....this week, she has been fine with weeing but gone back to her withholding for poo’s....and has started jumping off the potty. Not interested in any of the things we normally do whilst having potty time, I can sometimes get her back on with screen time but she will continually get back up and avoid pooing, even though the signs are all there that she needs to go. She would sometimes have a bit of discomfort but would always stay sitting and do her poo, but the last 4 days have proved difficult.
She hasn’t had a poo at all today and has gone to bed with a bloated tummy which just makes me feel so unsettled, as I’m sure it does her too!
I’m unsure as to what to do, I thought about increasing her dose just by half for a few days, incase she is having trouble going (although not sure she is being on that much a day??) but has anyone else been through this? Or have any ideas about what to do?
Do I just need to chill the hell out and she may eventually just get back into a relaxed routine?
Thanks in advance! X
