My daughter is 3.5 and been withholding since she was a baby. We got her to a point where she was pooing every day without soiling but we are back to soiling again but still doing normal poos every day. I don't think shes blocked up as I can see sweetcorn/kidney beans in her poo the day after eating (sorry tmi) also the poo soiling isn't runny its just like normal poo. I think she's just doesn't tell me when she needs to go so some poo comes out. We've also had a lot of changed in her routine lately (new nursery, new house and baby brother) She has a maintenance dose of two sachets of movicol and I've seen loads of suggestions of senna so I'm considering asking the GP for it.
What does senna actually do? When do you take it and how long does it take to work? I don't want her to have more accidents by changing the routine.
I really thought we had sorted this so it's really disheartening to take a step back. Thanks
