I have twin girls (they will be 3 in August). They have been potty trained for almost 3 months now and all going well, except for Alice who won't poo. At all. She holds it back and has only had about 3 small poos in the past 3 weeks. She is on a stool softener and laxatives but still no luck, so she has to go for a tummy x-ray.
Anyway, the past week she is suddenly scared of the dark, and she now also refuses to have a bath. The one day she loved having a bath and the next day she screamed blue murder and refused to go near the bath. She actually says she wants to poo on the potty and then sits there and refuses to move. We know she's only using it as an excuse not to have a bath.
Does anyone else have any experience, suggestions, advice etc? About the poo, the scared of the dark or the scared of the bath? It's so frustrating!
