Hi, My youngest son (4 in June) is still bowel incontinent. He has been urine continent since Aug 2016. He was diagnosed with a dairy intolerence which now its been resolved his bowel movements are more normal (before they were very soft) Ive tried toilet time taking him after meals and every couple of hours he will sit on the loo do nothing then 10 minutes after getting off the loo will poo his pants with the occasional poo on the toilet. After 7 months of this I'd had enough and went back to pull ups and started the whole routine again but same thing is happening. Hes not scared of the loo hes happy to wee on it and occasionally poos on it if we happen to sit him on it at the right time he just doesn't want to poo on the loo, hes quite happy doing it in a pull up, other problem is hes now getting lazy with wees as he knows hes got pull up on he just goes in that do his wee continence is being effected also. Ive tried saying tell me when you need a poo and we can put the pull up on doesnt work he just poos his pants I've tried rewards, sticker charts, praise doesnt work tried books to read about pooing on the toilet not interested. Spoke to Health Visitor she was no help Nursery are fab but have no more suggestions. He starts school in September and I would like to get him 'clean' by then.
Any help or advice is much appreciated as I have no idea what to do next!!!
