I was wondering if anyone has any experience potty training a child that has always withheld?
My son has just turned 3 and has been on Movicol for constipation and withholding due to a very painful bowel movement for two years now.
We started to potty train 5 days ago and although we are getting some wees in the potty, the poos are proving a nightmare.
After 3 days of withholding we increased his Movicol which just led to very loose accidents everywhere. He’s at the point where he won’t go on the potty for poos but doesn’t want a nappy either (although he did ask for one yesterday to do a poo in which was great but hasn’t wanted to use it since). He will sit on the potty for a bit after each meal as advised to try to help his anxiety.
Whenever we potty train this will always be an issue so I was wondering if anyone has any experienced anything similar?
Thank you in advance.
