5 year old keeps pooing herself

hello, my 5 year old daughter was fine going to the toilet everytime time she needed it but then a week into her starting school she started pooing herself and now its constant, it is really starting to get me down, i DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO ANYMORE nothing is working with her, if i tell her off then she doesnt even seem bothered about it. she will wee or poo herself anywhere we go. i ask her why she does it and all she says is i dont know or its too runny. it asif theres something not clicking in her head that she is doing a bad thing and its dirty, she doesnt seem abit bothered. iv took her to the doctors so many times and all they give me is medician for blockage but its not working, they have finally transfered her a pediactric nurse but they havent been in touch yet, and also school nurse is involved. i feel asif i cant cope anymore as i have a 1 year old daughter to look after aswell but at the moment it feels asif i have two 1 year olds lol. please please please HELP xx

It could be she is upset by something , how is she doing at school,has she shown any jealousy about the little one , perhaps she sees baby pooping in the diaper and is doing it to get more attention .Make sure she gets some one to one time with you and her dad ..

she is great with my daughter, and i think she really clever so i dont think shes doing it because of her younger sister. she gets one on one time with her dad because she goes to his every weekend, and has done since she was 4 months old x

If she goes to her Dad every weekend does she have the same problem with him?
