My almost 3-year old has been potty training for 4+ weeks. She would not poopy in the potty at all & her body would eliminate BM's during her sleep. She has had a handful of successful poopies but not with any consistancy. She has always been a bit consitpated & slow with her BM's.
I have been giving her a small amount of MiraLax & just upped her dose a bit this morning. I tried to give her prunes, that went over like a lead balloon. I have upped her fiber intake & given her more fresh fruit.
She gets very frustrated when I ask her to try to poop. She tells me "its too hard, I all done". I have tried reading books with her on the potty. Skittles, M&M's and sitckers are not motivating her. I don't want to fight her over this & make BM's a traumatic experience. But I feel like she is scared or it has been somehwhat painful & now she is holding her poop.
Any ideas or sugestions??
