I have a 3 1/2 year old daughter been potty trained since she was 2 1/2 but she refuses to poop in the toilet!!!!! its so bad she holds it in Im assuming because it hurts her cause when she finally goes her BM's are soo big that they plug up our toilet!! we have tried laxatives, stool softeners, suppository's, activia, live cultures, drinks the yogart, EVERYTHING homeopathic!! she holds it in and screams bloody murder when she cant hold it in ne more. ive been to the doc they say it's *normal* but now im having problems with her health insurance so im in the process of getting her a new pediatrician. i dont think it's the constipation i think she's holding it in which makes her constipated and increases the pain. her BM's are the color of normal BM's not dark like it would be in constipation... this has been going on for almost a year! my patience are non existant! this lasts for hours I can't spend all day in the bathroom!!!

Change her diet. Change everything that she is eating asap. See how she does once you do and gradually add more things into her diet so you can figure out what is causing it. To much dairy will actually plug her up and make her poop hard. Start her on a soup diet with veggies in it. If nothing changes then it may be a medical problem.
