First time posting
Our little boy (3) tried potty training in December, had one hard poo and withheld ever since. We had to give up the potty training and put him in pull ups and he was very resistant to potty training since and still withholding in pull ups
When he turned three 15th July we decided on a weekend and got him involved in throwing all the nappies away and he was excited to try the potty training. After 2 accidents he is now weeing successfully in the potty every time. During the first few days he was getting the overflow again of poo and we decided to just go for it and do the disempaction regime (messy yes in pants!). We are on day 4 and it's going well but now we are Starting to think about reducing it I am still baffled how we get him to poo normally on the potty? He is getting distressed every time he poos now on the regime so I just know he will go straight back to withholding? Any tips?
We have tried every bribe imaginable, nothing works? We have even tried prizes for just sitting in the toilet and he eventually got bored of that
For the first time I feel like we are making progress with the wee's and the potty training and I just can't get him to relax or even sit on the toilet (he wee's standing up)
Any advice greatly appreciated
