Since this has become pretty much a parenting blog, we now have the obligatory poop reference. Natalie is having similar output problems, but hers are more, shall we say, organic. She is very close to being out of diapers for daytime but is having a lot of trouble in the poop department. She just doesn't seem to know HOW to poop in the toilet, or perhaps she is scared, but no longer poops in diapers much unless she's asleep.* It's becoming a major problem and led to a near war with my mom, who accused us of pushing her too much too soon and scarring her for life (we are only potty training at Natalie's interest and insistence - she went through a major diaper refusal campaign, so what else were we going to do)? So we read a lot about poop, and talk about it being ok in diapers or potties, and listen to Poopsmith, and oh, dear lord the fiber, the fiber! Unfortunately, we're now 4 days since the last deposit, and despite clear discomfort and a LOT of time spent on a potty or in a diaper today -- nada. Suggestions ARE welcome.
*There have been a handful times when she did poop in the potty, but it was mostly accidental.
