The Things We Do...

...to get a kid to poop in the potty.

Daya hates to poop. She says it stinks. So she'd rather just avoid it altogether. It's not hard to figure out that this is not a workable solution, clever though it is.

So I stuck a suppository up her butt and I am hoping for the best. So far she's incredibly resistant. But in the end she can't possibly win the Poop War.







Thank goodness for laptops with DVD drives!

  2. Both my kids had this problem at this age and the pediatrician told me they are so busy having fun they forget to poop and then it gets hard and then it hurts...I finally worked out (with the pediatrician) the thing that worked the very best! I made individual cups of jello and added a heaping teaspoon of Metamucil in each one. They loved to have one for dessert every day and did not realize the Metamucil was in there! It kept them soft so it never hurt after that. Check with your doctor first and make sure it is OK for her before you try it, if you want to! Good luck!
