My daughter just turned 4 years old and won't go poo on the potty. She used to be fully potty trained, then about 6 months ago she just stopped wanting to go poo. I've taken her to the doctor who has given me creams for her,specialist who gave us this stuff called Peg. I've tried prunes, mineral oil, Peg, time outs, rewards, and nothing seems to make her want to go on the potty. Its not thats she doesnt have to go, she just poos her pants every time. If anybody would have some other things i could try, i would really apperciate it....I've just hit a brick wall and have no idea what else to do

Silly question, but have you asked her why? Does it hurt or is she scared of the toilet (perhaps the sound?) Has she seen you on the toilet? What about older siblings? Sounds like you're doing everything you can....I wish I could offer better advice, I'm sure it will come :-) Stay strong!
