Misdee, Your wee one may well have a tiny split in the skin at the opening of her anus. These are extremely painful, and do definatley put a child, (OR adult, for that matter)off pooing, lots of kids actually become severely constipated, because of holding, because of pain.

Main thing is to try to keep the poo soft,
also use a nice soothing cream on her bottom, diahorrea alone can give a sore bott',
but especially sore if a split in skin is also present.

Hope things will rapidly improve.
