I seriously need to know if anyone else is going through this with potty training.

My 3 year old daughter will pee on the toilet, but when it comes to having a bowel movement, forget it! She refuses, and her stomach gets upset. So i put a diaper on her and tell her i dont care if she poo's in her diaper, cause i just want her to get it out. But she will literally sit on her foot when she feels like she needs to poop. And she goes through stained underwear all day, and with me changing her and wiping her bum all day it is red and sore, so now she is even more scared to poop. I have been using buttocks paste on her for the soreness but i am thinking maybe an enema is needed to clean her out to give her bum cheeks a break????? So frustrated!

She could get herself impacted, which is very normal for toddlers. I would take her to the doctor and see if they can give her something to make it easier on her. By the way being impacted is NOT good, it can actually be very dangerous.
