Ok TMI I guess but anyways. My daughter is 3 will be 4 at the end of June. She has a speech delay so she started potty training late. We started in January and she is of course doing great....EXCEPT she has been getting so constipated since then! She has once went almost 2 weeks without a bowel movement. She has been to the dr numerous times and they just pump her full of laxatives but they dont really help. She will go a lot(like baby type poop)then not go again for 5 days! She does eat lots of fruits and veggies and drinks a ton of water so I know its not her diet. We are supposed to be seeing a GI Specialist but I honestly don't think she has anything wrong with her inside. She never got constipated until potty training!

Does anyone who has ever been through this before have any tips? I get so worried and I hate seeing her in pain :(

yes thats what i have been told :( but its like she TRIES to go. she will strain and strain and sit on it forever. I had to take her to the er this past week bc her tummy was rock hard and she was screaming in pain for hours and they gave her an enema..she sat on the potty and went without a hassle. she even goes straight to the potty on her days she isnt constipated.
