So, my daughter had her first visit with a Pediatric Gastroenterologist yesterday for her bowel movements. According to him, it's a common case in children between the ages of 1-14 years of age to hold their bowels, due to a previous traumatizing experience not wanting to "do it again".
He suggested that we feed her ex-lax and cleanse out her intestines, then start all over again, with bowel training.
Her bowels contain huge amounts of mucus...is this normal???
Is anyone else experiencing now or has experienced this before?
Thanks-
