Thanks for writing in.

I have read your post with diligence - nothing to worry. This happens many times due to gastro-colic reflex. Here whenever anything is put into mouth it causes sensation of passing motion.

You can try diverting her mind to some other activities which can help stopping the stool many a times. If you do like this for some time she will forget / get accustomed to this reflex and her symptoms should reduce.

In the mean time you can give antispasmodic drops like cyclopam or colimax for the time being after discussing with her pediatrician.

Hope I answered your query. If you have more queries or clarification, please ask; I will be happy to help.

Wish you good health
