Hi- my 3 year old has been withholding her poo for a year now, she’s on movicol which makes her go but she never wants me to change her out of her soiled pants. She’s happy to sit in it. I don’t know if she’s embarrassed. We have had limited success in the past with going on the potty/toilet but not for a while. I don’t know what to do for the best, my plan is to keep her on Movicol and I’m obviously happy that she’s just going regardless of where it is. My questions are-
1) how do I broach the subject of changing her pants without making the situation worse?
2) is there anything I can do to encourage her to ask for a nappy to do it or to get her to do it in the toilet eventually?
I’m thinking it’s going to be a slow process, but I just don’t want to make it worse.
