OK-Try giving her a tablespoon of Kayro light or Kayro dark syrup, whichever you have on hand.
Also, if you have apple juice, pear juice, any fruit or fruit juice that is high in PECTIN helps with constipation. Since she probaly won't have much interest in foor based on your post, probably woudl be easier for her to consider taking in sips of a beverage like apple juice if you have this. Another idea, if you can get her to drink some sips of hot tea, maybe put some Kayo in hot tea and see if this will help her.
Stewed, slighttly warmed prunes, heated prune juice, figs, dried prunes shoul dhelp her.
Do you think she would drink perhaps 1/2 cup of hot tea sweetened with Kayro?
As long as she is crying and upset sitting on the pottie, she will have a hard time having a bowel movement. Maybe you could sit in the bathroom with her, have her sit on the pottie and sip some hot tea with Kayro and read her a story to help her relax. Sometimes a child will pottie if they aren't thinking about not being able to go..and are distracted.
What do you think about this? Think you can get her to drink some tea and kayro?
I will stay online until I hear back,OK? I am going downstairs to get my pediatric nursing book and see what else I can find, K? Susan =)
