My 5 year old daughter has been having very very sticky, hard to pass and hard to wipe, stools.(Maybe TMI just to forwarn) Remedy suggestions?
My daughter will be 5 in April, and she hasn't ever had any potty accidents, but the last two days she has had to run to the potty, only to stand up and say she doesn't have to go any more. But at some point later in the day, she has pooped a little in her underwear. She also pooped in the bathtub the last two nights. Each time she's gone, its only been one large stool. But accompanied by shaking and straining and complaints of a tummy ache.
While cleaning her bottom, the stool was extremely hard to wipe off and took 3 wet wipes and 4 dry ones. When I cleaned the bathtub I had to scrape the stool off the bottom of the tub, like glue. No wonder she's having a hard time!
I'm adding a tiny bit of clear fiber to her morning drinks for the next couple days, always having fresh water out for her, and upping her fruit, nut, and veggy intake. (We're vegetarians, so she normally has no problems)
Any other suggestions that might help?
