I'm not taking about potty training - we haven't even started that - and I know she's not constipated. She is simply afraid to poop.
Two weeks ago she was constipated but she's been taking Miralax ever since and hasn't had any problems. Two days ago she started refusing to poop. When the urge to go hits her, she goes rigid, stands on tip-toe, and clenches all her muscles tight until the urge passes. I finally had to give her a laxative AND a suppository to get her to go after watching her fight it for over 12 hours.
What can I do to help calm her fears? It is heart breaking to watch and not be able to do anything.
