My dd is almost 3 and we are working going poop in the potty. Her digestive system has never been "normal", she has always had the runs and strained to go. The dr could never find anything wrong we had several test and an x-ray after being kicked out of a daycare for pooping too much in a day. All of her test come up normal, so I thought maybe this was just normal for her. Now when I have her set on the potty to poop, she says ouch the whole time she is doing it. We haven't pooped much on the potty, she would rather find a dark place and squat in her pants, but if it hurts her more on the potty, I guess I can see why. I am not sure why it would hurt more and I'm not sure why her poop hasn't gotten more solid with her age. I try to give her a balanced diet, but it is hard, she doesn't always want to eat every meal I feed her, so I know she doesn't get everything. Anyone have this problem as well and have any suggestions about what could be going on?? I don't know if I need to try a new dr or what.
