Hey MoMs, my 2.5 year old has been having a lot of trouble on and off with poops. She will hold her poops in for sometimes up to 7-8 days. I have been using laxatives, suppositories you name it. We have gotten it down to 3-4 days with laxatives but I don’t want her to become reliant. I need some positive reinforcement ideas to help her associate pooping with good and not pain. She isn’t potty trained yet as I didn’t want to add that stress on to an already stressful situation and send her backward.
