I'm the father of a 33 month old girl who absolutely will not go poop. She is not constipated as we have had her on medicine in the past for that. She eats well, but she will just not go. She dances around and holds in in as best as she can but she ends up letting out about 3 tablespoons worth of soft poop about 2 to 3 times an hour. The poop smells absolutely horrible because it's been inside of her for so long. Her little bottom also gets so sore because we have to wipe her so many times during the day. Nothing we have tried has worked. I think she is just to scared to poop. Needless to say, her mother and I, as well as her, are just so frustrated. Any suggestions?[/b]

Has she been examined for the possibility of anal fissures?

well i think you should lay off of the dairy products, some children have problems pooping and a lot like to poop in privacy.. my lil cousin use to hide behind a chair, this may sound weird but put her in a diaper when you think she will poop so she can slowly re try pooping.. you should definitely have her be seen by a doctor......
