My son was potty trained over the Christmas holidays (we know how to have fun in this house!). He took to it brilliantly and even started pooing once a day on the potty, a proper grown up poo, not his usual tiny poos throughout the day. He knew when he needed to go and did it no problem, whereas he would withhold whilst wearing nappies. He's on a maintenance dose of 1 sachet of motion a day so the poo was still nice and soft, he had no issues with it being painful.
However, four weeks in and he has started soiling and I feel a bit stuck about how to deal with this. I *think* he needs a clear out but I'm just not sure - the 'soiling' isn't dark and hard like it used to be, it's soft and a bit like cream cheese in consistency which we haven't encountered before. He hasn't done a 'proper' poo in about 4 days and the soiling is quite heavy - again not the odd bit like before. We're throwing pants away as they're just so heavily soiled.
I'm wondering if this is too much movicol or not enough? Anyone with any experience or thoughts please let me know. Also, if I do clear him out do I stick to him using the potty or go back to pullups during the process? I'm sure you'll all recognise my feelings of frustration and thinking I might actually go mad 😊
