Q.

Bowel movement at night

My 13 month old daughter normally goes to bed at 7pm, but for the last couple of weeks, she''s refused to go to sleep and then has a bowel movement between 7 and 8pm. Can we prevent this? Her last meal is usually at around 5.30pm.

Your baby daughter has become used to this routine now and it is going to be duifficult at her age to train her differently. When she is older and you have started potty training then you can try to get her into a morning routine.
