My nearly 6 year has been pooing himself his whole life. Over the holidays did a disimpaction and he did a few poos on the toilet but is back to pooing himself. He even said to me that he poos his pants because it's easier and he can carry on playing. I'm at a loss. I've tried prizes , being "normal" and not being angry but nothing works! School called me to say he pooed himself and it was all dried on and could I come clean him up. I feel like a massive failure as a mum. Why won't he poo on the loo! The school nurses aren't interested just tell me to go to the doctor. The doctor just says change the amount of movicol. My husband pooed himself as a kid until he was 7 . And he said he only stopped cos he realised it was easier to poo on the toilet rather than have schemes such as putting toilet paper in his pants etc. I emailed the Eric website helpline and they responded 2 months later and they were clearly responding to someone else's email as half way through the email talked about "your grandson who's will only poo in the nappy" that's not my problem? So all the tips related to this boy and not mine. Can anytime offer any way I can sort this? It's impacting massively on his life. He's missing out on lessons cos he has to go clean himself up which takes him ages. I'm wary of him joining clubs etc cos what if he poos?
Thanks for listening
