Hi – my daughter Naomi is 4 yrs old and has SSHD. She is taking 2 squares of ex lax before she goes to sleep. She is in underwear all day and during the day does really well with being able to tell that she needs to poop or pee, etc. She does have streaks at times and it is all a lot worse if her poop is loose. All that being said, she is pooping when she sleeps at night. We have tried giving her the ex lax at dinner time (6 or so ) at bed time (7:30/8:-- or so) at 11pm and even later. It doesn’t matter – she will still poop sometime in the early morning and will not wake up. She also pees at night and when she takes a nap (but doesn’t poop during naps). Changing the ex lax to during the day results in leaky poop all day. We are very happy with the clean-out results and that she is able to be in underwear all day, etc. but the pooping while sleeping is not great. I am looking for suggestions or insights - is she going to start waking up to poop?
thanks so much,
