He is fully trained on using the toilet for a pee but refuses to sit on the toilet for a poo!
He has suffered from constipation ever since he was 2 due to a poor diet. I am now working with the GP to get the right medication as it seems like it is getting worse or he is holding it in as it will not go for 3 days in a row.
I have been extremely stressed out about this matter and have had very little support as everyone keeps telling me to stop buying pull ups and he will go and I personally believe and know its not that easy.
He was toilet trained which wasn't a problem apart from getting him to poo on the toilet. Recently I have been working with him and now we are at the stage where he will tell me he needs a poo, go to the bathroom request a pull up, do what he needs to do and then sit on the toilet to remove the pull up and flush the poo down the toilet.
I am trying to get him to sit on the toilet with the pull up as I have read methods on cutting a hole etc but he poos standing up and refuses to even try and sit for a poo.
I keep reading stories and my fear is that he will still be at this stage when starting school next September.
I Currently work full time and he is at nursery but will never go at nursery as he holds it in for when he comes home.
I am desperate for advice and hoping someone can help me.
