Urinary and Genital Disorders (Children)

Premature child with bowel problem

08/01/2008

Question:

I have a five year old who was 7 weeks premature. She had many problems, but got all clear. Now she seems to be holding herself while hiding a lot of accidents in her pants. Her stools seem to be very large and dark in color. Docs say she`ll grow out of it, but I`m worried. Is there more to it?
