Down syndrome and loose stool

Hi
I have a 3 year old daughter with Down Syndrome. She has never had a solid bowel movement. It's not exactly diahrrhea but it's always mushy. Sometimes she has violent explosions. She has no pain at all. She also has a great appetite and eats very well. She sleeps 10 hours a night and takes a nap. She looks to be the picture of health except for this problem. The doctor has done lab work and can't find anything. Does anyone have any ideas? I hear that some kids with DS may not be potty trained by 6 or 7.
I can't imagine her going to school with this problem.
Thanks
Diane
