toddler constipation

My daughter is 2.5 years old and is having the urge to poop but is holding it in. We tried Calc Carb and within 2-4 hours she goes. But it didn't stimulate her to go daily like she had been back in June. We gave her 200C because that's all I had on hand on last Sunday at 4 and she went at 1am. Then I bought the 30C and gave her that on Wednesday and within 2 hours she went.

I selected Calc Carb because she sweats when she falls asleep and seems to be avoiding going because of some painful poops previous to this.

When she has the urge to go she asked to go upstairs to the bed. When we are in the bed and she has the urge to go, she asks to go downstairs again. We are getting tired of going up and down the stairs many times a day only to have her not poop at all the entire day.

Any advice?

'Then I bought the 30C and gave her that on Wednesday and within 2 hours she went. '

What happened to BM after Wednesday, besides going up and down?

'to have her not poop at all the entire day. '
Are you saying that she has not pooped since Wednesday?

On Thursday I gave her more 30C calc carb (2 doses I think) but no bm until tonight. I was starting to think maybe it was the wrong remedy so we stopped after those 2 doses.

She actually pooped about an hour ago. She typically goes 5 days or more without a bm. When we used this remedy it just happens to be every 3 days.

Please give her Alumina 30C, 2 drops mixed in 1 teaspoonful of mineral water, 3 times a day, for 2 days.

Report progress in a couple of days.

Many prayers for you guys.

We couldn't find Alumina 30C locally so we just continued with Calc Carb along with probiotics and magnesium calm in her water. She's been going every 3 days for the most part.

Here are her current symptoms:

Wants to stay in bed all day and read books and play and eat snacks. When she feels the urge to have a bm she asks to go to the bed (if for instance we are eating breakfast or lunch and she feels a bm start, she asks to go to the bed). Then we stay there all day and she never goes. Going to the bed seems to stop the bm from happening. When she does go it is in the bath tub or after we give her calc carb or while she's sleeping in the night. It seems like when she is relaxed she finally can 'go'. She asks us to darken the room and turn on music even during the day when she is avoiding going. Right now she is in a phase too of not wanting to take a bath. We feel it's because the second she gets in the warm water the urge to defecate happens and she quickly wants to get out of the tub because she fears going. Another recent bm she had she was dancing around the bed, anxious and scared because it was starting to come out. I held her hands and told her to breathe and she was able to go. All she wants to eat is bread and butter. Other things she will eat are rice, fig newtons, dehydrated peas, anything sweet - chocolate and cakes and cookies are favorite. Of course we don't offer these things. We are constantly offering her veggies, fruits, etc. and she refuses. Around her anus it is usually a dark red, but recently it's a bright red. She is still breastfeeding. She sweats when she falls asleep for daytime naps, especially underneath her eyes and her scalp. Her whole head gets drenched and it soaks into the sheets. It looks like she took a bath. She doesn't sweat at night. She has been irritable lately (is getting a molar) and when she has a tantrum she doesn't want us to talk to her, look at her or touch her. If eventually she'll let me hold her and nurse her, I can't look at her or she'll hit me. She doesn't like it if we talk to her about any 'sensitive' subjects - like if I say ' if you feel treasures (our word for a bm) coming, breathe and push it out' she says ' no, no, don't want to talk about it'.

I want to see what you all think. I have a hard time reading the materia medica and being objective.

' continued with Calc Carb'
How many doses per day? What potency? How long?

Whenever she didn't have a bm and we were worried it would go longer than 3 days, we gave her Calc Carb 30 C 5 pellets one time and then she usually went 2 hrs or so later. Sometimes we gave her the 5 pellets twice a day. We really didn't keep track. Initially all I had was 200C so she got that first. Then I went out and bought the lower potency to use as needed.

I also wanted to mention she had a bm last night. She was sitting on the bed in a slight recline position. It didnt seem to bother her and she just had to push a few times.

Right before that she was nursing and said she saw a fairy princess. She asked what the fairy princess was doing and said 'picking up toys'. I had her point to the fairy princess and she pointed up to the ceiling. I of course couldnt see anything. This happened a couple months ago as well. Except back then she said it was a cowboy. Both times her eyes are open and it's night time. We are cuddling and nursing.

Please stop the remedy immediately and wait. She has already taken too much.

One must never self-prescribe as these remedies are very powerful with serious side effects.

Many prayers for your daughter.

Come again? How have we given her too much? What should we do? Is there an antidote?
naponlap last decade
Please give her Nux Vomica 30C, only 2 doses with a gap of 4 hours.

Thank you! We will use a professional from now on.

More prayers for you guys.
