when your child says, "mommy, i wanna go pooh, pooh"....

it's a matter of life and death. by this, i mean, that when your child asks you she wants to go pooh pooh, you just drop everything that you do and see to it that she's relieved of the discomfort. i have a 2yr-old daughter and when she was only a little bit over a year she had a constipation problem. i'm glad she's over it now that's why i consider going poh pooh the most important activity of a child. see, the porcelain situation couldn't even compare to this. the porcelain situation is when your catch your child playing with your most precious porcelain. let's say, you're talking on the phone at that time..you would just warn your child to put it down or else, but you don't really abandon what you are presently doing....while the pooh pooh situation, you would say bye-bye to whomever you are talking on the phone in a heartbeat..can you totally relate?

Yes! i can totally relate! My 21 month old son experienced constipation twice already and it hurts my heart seeing him suffer. Now,his habit is to pooh pooh after waking up and its also my habit to panic when he don't pooh pooh after waking up. Well, at least for the past several months, he is okay!

that is a nice habit to develop. there should be a routine when to pooh pooh so we could monitor our child's tiolet habit especially if there is a history of constipation problem. they say that papaya is very good for those who have constipation but the problem is my child doesn't eat papaya. so do i...:)

Oh yes definitley if they need to go they need to go! While shopping in town a few weeks ago my eldest really needed a wee so we found the closest toilets which had a queue of like 10-12 people we stood at the end of the queue and she is jiggling about and crying mummy i REALLY need a wee and every single person said take her now when an empty toilet was available normally people arent so kind and just ignore her.
