My 3 Year Old Is Constipated Because Of Potty Training
Toilet training: It is difficult to train an anxious child. Surely, he should not be coerced or forced to use the potty if he does not want too. Just back off for now and try again in a month or so. Giving rewards may also work when he is ready and willing, he will surprise you. ...Read more
My 6 year old son has been potty trained for over 3 years but is starting to poo his pants. Help!?
May be constipated: One of the most common reasons for pooping in his pants is the child is constipated, and has "overflow incontinence". If your child does not have a bm regularly, or is very quick in passing a bm, his large intestine may be full of poop, and he may be waiting until he can't hold it anymore. Check his stool pattern, and also find out why he is holding his bm's. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My 3 year old daughter withheld poop for 6 months. She is now pooping normally in nappies but refuses to try the potty. What approach should I take?
Give her MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol): daily in a dose that keeps her stools soft. She may associate pain from hard stools or an anal fissure with toileting. Put small, safe toys in a clear bowl on top of the 'fridge. Say nothing. When she asks about them, casually say, "Oh, you get to choose one when you poo-poo on the potty. " A little looser stool helps keep knees up & blowing bubbles helps expel poop while on the toilet. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am potty training my 3 year old who has a strong personality.The only method that has worked is by having her naked. She still bed wets. Any advice?
Put her clothes on: If you have done rehearsal & she knows where the stuff is the best thing you can do is become her assistant, not her drill sergeant. A strong willed child must first understand when she gets the feeling she needs to go, & feel happy she is responding to that need.Telling her no more than twice a day that you will help is crucial. You can provide incentives for doing big girl things but relax. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My 8 year old daughter is overweight but my 9 year old daughter isn't. Why does my youngest gain so much weight and yet eats the same food as her sis ?
Good question: If both of your daughters eat the same diet and one is very overweight, that child may have a medical problem leading to weight gain. I am assuming that in addition to similar diets they have similar levels of activity and sleep. Have your younger child checked by her doctor for medical conditions that can contribute to weight gain. If none, consider emotional concerns, stress etc. ...Read more
