yes it happens all the time! My doctor told us to give lax food(to help go easier) lots of apple juice some baby laxitived once a month. They say they get it because kids hold there batheroom fearful that they will miss something fun. Mine oldest went 3 days with going number 2 one time so now EVERYDAY i put her on the potty at the same time and give her the same toy, We call it the poo poo toy and she can only play with it when she is going poo poo, then if she goes all the time is is less likly to have to strain if she goes more often.
Hope this help!
