My 3yr old son (4 at the end of the month) is still in nappies and I am very conscious that he is due to starts reception in September. Wondering if anyone has any advise on how to manage him still being in nappies when starting? He’s had ongoing constipation issues since he was a baby and shows no interest in potty training at all. He ended up in hospital recently for impaction and had Klen Prep. Since then he’s been on sodium picasulphate daily. He was on Movicol for over 2 years but won’t tolerate it in anything any more. He doesn’t communicate when he needs to go or if he has gone wee or poo so is completely reliant on nappies still. We have a referral to the specialist again in June and will discuss it all further then but wondering if others had experience in similar situations. The meds he is on now seem to give him stomach ache a lot and when he does poo it is always liquid, very foul and very unpredictable with no control to it. There is no pattern to his bowl movements but it is impacting on his day to day life and participation in activities which is upsetting for him and me.
