She got exammined and her stomach doesnt empty the way it should it takes longer for it to do what it is suppose to, She also was on similac isomil as a baby and any other formula she would reguratate back up and it was horrible to see my baby go through. Now we are potty training her and the way we did it is she started trying to use the potty when we started potty training my oldest daughter(3yr old) and we took them out of diapers and they wear regular underwear and it helped boost their self confidence now my 3 yr old daughter is fully potty trained but my 2 yr old named kaylia is still taking time she is a little different from her sister. She has mood problems we had started getting help with from a behavioral center.But anyways when she poops it has been mostly liquiddy she eats a perfect vegtable and fruit diet that normal 2 yr olds should eat we try to keep chips or junk food to a minimum and her doctor said that he eating is great but her bowels are so horrible looking and smelling the only other problem she has besides that is having acid reflux but she hasnt had any problems with it in awhile but we cant figure out what is wrong with her digestive it is to the point im about to put her back on similac isomil so she doesnt have to go through it as badly as she is. She is a smart child but her mood and personality is the most weirdest smartest and most interesting one i have ever come across out of all my friends i have with kids and for me this is really tough im 21 married my daughters are 3(which btw her name is Roen pronounce Rowan) and 2,they are 10 months apart....and i could use any suggestions anyone has to offer in which could help with her bowel movement problems...please and thank you

Try a probiotic. You can get childrens probiotics at the drug store. It helps the stool be more regular consistency. Hope this helps

I don't want ot scare you, but she might have diabetes - excesive thirst is one of the synptoms - that way diabetics get rid of insuline. It might not be the case, but maybe you should talk to her doctor - just remember to mention that she has mood problems and drinks a lot.

we tried foods that harden her stool but nothing worked she always wants stuff to drink but we have to limit her because if we dont she will drink stuff nonstop all day

Sounds like she's on a good diet, and you are saying that she doesn't poop the way she should?

Well, soft poop is good, you can always add carbs to harden it up. I have the worst problem with my daughter (who is 2) trying to keep hers soft.

And digestive problems, I have no words. As a mom, I would hit the websites and mom blogs just like you are doing here to get something to go off of, and then my Dr.

My 3 yr old daughter suffered with stomach cramps for a while. I worked out she was eating too much fruit. I kept a food diary of what she was eating, how much and the times she was eating it. I also made a note of the times she was suffering the cramps.

Her breakfast used to consist of fruit salad and sometimes yoghurt. Now she has a piece of wholemeal toast with peanut butter or weetbix. By having a breakfast that is higher in fibre and more filling and cutting down her fruit to snack times and after she has had lunch I have eliminated 99% of the cramps and her bowel movements are more solid.
I thought she may have had an intolerence to something she was eating or maybe IBS but so far we haven't needed a doctors appointment.
