I need help! My 22 month old daughter has been holding her poop in for almost a year. When she feels the urge to go, she clenches her legs super, insanely tight and holds it in. There are times that she's gone 3 days without pooping. When that happens, I have to give her a suppository and literally pry her legs open and help her push the poop out. The doctor recommended mineral oil in her bottle which worked wonders as her poop just "slid" out but now she's not taking bottles. She drinks apple juice and eats some fruit but not a lot. And she screams every time I change her diaper now because she thinks I'm going to give her a suppository. She's clearly very traumatized from them. We need help!!! What else can I do?!?
