I'm at my wits end and hoping for some words of wisdom from you.
Last June I successfully potty trained my lg at 2 and a half. She took to it brilliantly, was even dry through the night after the second night.
Then, without a reason that we could pinpoint, she had the odd soil which then started to become more frequent. By the end of the summer she stopped using the toilet for poos completely. We weren't concerned as we assumed one day she'd 'get it' and go to the toilet again.
We tried to encourage her to use the loo with reward charts, praise, ignoring it etc but she wouldn't have any of it. She then started to hold on to her poo so we would have several soils each day. In May this year we put her back in pull ups to take the pressure of it all off of her but she still seemed to hold it in.
In August this year we put her on Movicol and back in to knickers with the usual praise and rewards but we've had no luck whatsoever and she is still holding. She even tells me she tells herself to hold it when she feels it coming.
I really don't know how to break the cycle as its become so much more of a problem for her than it needed to be.
Please tell me some miracle trick that I've somehow missed, I'm ashamed to admit I shouted at her tonight out of sheer frustration and I've now got the mummy guilt and sobbing over my keyboard
