  • I would put a call into her dr. and ask him what now? I suggest you ask him to put her on some Miralax. It will help make her poop softer and make her go. She is probably really constipated.

  • Wow, something is really wrong if after 2 enemas she hasn't pooped. My DD gets constipated a lot and her dr told me to give her a little bit of miralax when it happens (started at 18 months old). I give her a teaspoon and usually have to mix it in some juice so she'll take it. But with your LO not going potty after 2 enemas, I think I'd consult a gasterologist. What if she has some sort of blockage?
