I know this sounds stupid but....This morning my 3yr old was trying to poop and was crying for help so we were rubbing his tummy while he pushed ... This went on for like 30 minutes until DH left for work & I told ds to sit while I get undies & we would try later...I hear this scream that we call the "vomit scream" and ran for him and sure enough he was throwing up. He has since thrown up at least 6 times...There is nothing in him to throw up so it's liquid & mucus and it's only been 3 hours! What is we rubbed too hard? What if rubbing while he was pushing is bad? I'm freaking out!! We do have a doctors appt. but I'm freaking out now!!!Answer Question

He could have a fecal impaction. Toddlers can hold their poop in and it turns into a hard mass that can become a medical emergency. It can involve vomiting. It may not have been the rubbing at all. If his appointment isn't soon today and his condition gets worse you may need to take him to the ER. He may need to some kind of scan and to have it removed. It can be very, very painful and you want him to get help.

With an impaction he won't have a fever.
