How long do I wait for her to poop?!

My daughter is notorious for not wanting to go poop. So quite frequently she holds it in until it is painful to go. BUT, we've never gone this long before. We're on 6 days with no poop. Last night I gave her a glycerine sopository (the pediatric size) and still no poop. . . how is this possible? I figure as soon as I call the dr she will poop. . . but does anyone have any thoughts?

I'd give her another suppository, normally they can't hold back with two! My little guy has had that problem and we took him to his doctor who got us to use those, and it worked after two of them. If after the second one you have no result I'd give the doctor a call anyway. If she poops when you call, well, it worked, and if not, you have already called them. Good luck!
