Cronic constipation and witholding stool - 2,5 year oldI am looking a remedy for my daughter who is 2,5 years old and suffers from constipation for almost a year now.
It begun approximatelly the same period of time as I stopped her breastfeeding (20 months of age). Since 20 months of age, she doesn't have dipers anymore, she goes to the loo to the toilet. But when it comes to bovel movements she refuses to go to the toilet, she would only go to the diaper. As far as I recall all started with a few days of constipation and when she finely went to the toilet, she experienced the pain and she refuses to go ever since. She witholds the bovel movements, but she feels the strong urge to go, she only passes stool when she can not hold it in anymore. Stool is not always dry, sometimes is soft, but never runny, but every time is passed with pain. It is not crumbly or in small pieces and I would say there is a normal amount of it. She passes stool every 2-3 days. When she gets urge for passing stool, she becomes restless, walk or run around the room, going from one persont to another, ask to go home (if not at home), wants to be hold, than immidiately not anymore. When she can not hold it in anymore, she passes the stool with great pain, she always become red in her face, she always passes stool when standing up (in a diaper), refuses to squat or change the position, sometimes she tries to hold on to something (like a chair or a person), she stands very still and pushing. It takes 5-10 minutes for her to finish it – she passes stool several times in a row in this 5-10 minutes (I assume in small quantities). When I ask her where it hurts, she points to the anus. Once is over, she becomes a happy child again.
She is a girl with light brown hair and dark eyes. Her body is skinny and small (but not tiny). She maybe has a little bit of a fuller cheeks. Skin is normal, not pale, not red, she doesn't have dark under her eyes, she looks healthy, her skin is maybe a little bit on the dark side, she is caucasian race. She is a happy child, really curious, wan't to be part of everything we do, she is developing really quickly – mentally and phisically (she learned to walk, sit, talk, sing.. sooner than other kids of her age). She is talkative when is around people she knows, she enjoys socialisation, she enjoys when she can explain something she knows. When she wakes up in the morning, she is always in a good mood. She doesn't need much sleep. She needs more time to fall a sleep, she doesn't want to go to sleep, even when she is tired, but when she doesn't know that it is time for sleep, she falls to sleep in a minute (for example: in the car). I have a feeling that she doesn't want to go to sleep, because she thinks she is going to miss something. She doesn't need afternoon sleep anymore, she is a very active child. Her hands and feet are normaly warm. She always feels hot when she is in bed and she always trys to uncover her blanket, even if it is cold in the room. She is rarely ill, but when she is (usually fever and cold), she recovers in a day or two. She likes milky food and potato.
Thank you for you advice!
