DD is 4.5,we had some problems for about a year,started with some wetting(not full on accident) then soiling.mostly is just a bit of poo,sometime quite a bit.been to gp ,he felt her tummy and said nothing wrong there?eventualy got some lactulose and things improved but now gone bad again :-( thing is she does go to the toilet every day,sometime more then once,even tho it doesnt seem to be a full BM iukwim?i dont know if its just a behaviour thing(not wanting to sit on toilet for long time) or chronic constipation.shall i take her back to the GP?any tips on how to teach her to go as soon as she needs rather then wait till she finishes the book/game/coloring??thanks

I would take her back to GP yeh. Ask to be put in touch with continence nurse, sounds bit like lazy bowel. Movicol is great very gentle on tum,helps form & regulate.good luck
