Can you ask the doctor for some stool softeners? Try to give her lots of fruit/high fiber foods so that it's not as firm.



If she's just holding it in this could be some sort of control issue? Does she have things she has control over or independence in other areas of her life? I would either get stool softener (from your doctor) or load her up on high fiber foods. After that try to incorperate things she can do on her own or give her choices. If this is a control issue I would say do not make a big deal out of this, make it into a non-issue if possible.
