It's really at 3 am. Most of the time she wakes up prior and makes it to the bathroom and sometimes not.

How do I get her out of this night time cycle? It has been going on for a month.

Then she has trouble getting back to sleep. Sometime she poops in her sleep and wakes up at 5 am screaming yuck help me.

What can I do?

Hello Tried,

This can be a bit more difficult,as we all know,children's stool softener takes it's time to work,right now,I would say to try small amounts of a mild one and check on the timing to set her to go in the afternoon,once she starts going regularly stop the meds and we will hope for the best.

This is all I can think of at the moment,If I come up with an easier way,I will be sure to let you know ASAP.

Please keep us up-dated.
