I'm so sorry to hear about
your daughter. My daughter was 18 months when her symptoms started appearing. Although not officially diagnosed with either Chrons or UC, she has inflammation throughout her colon and a little in her small bowel (although the small bowel follow through indicated that she had no evidence of Chrons). She will be 3 in March and has been on Prednisone (20 mg and weaned off), Asacol, Colazal, VSL, and various antibiotics. Nothing seems to work in kicking it. Her doctor wants to start her on 6 MP, but I want her to get another colonoscopy to check how the disease has progressed or not. It's so hard to be a mom to a toddler with this. It's hard to watch them go to the bathroom so many times. The positive thing is that they don't really know the difference, they get used to it. My daughter was successful at potty training and hasn't had an accident in over 4 months! I just make sure we are always near a bathroom. If you need to talk some more, I'll keep checking this post. Good luck with your daughter. Maybe you have some tips that has worked for you!
