I posted last year about our son withholding his poos during potty training, we ended up under Health Visitor support for this who said he was chronically constipated and needed a disimpaction. We did this before Christmas and had a clean slate in the new year for potty training.
He wees on the potty and loo no issues and is in pants and doing really well with this. We've had some poos on the potty which he had been so pleased about but over the past month it has regressed back to holding stools, soiling and only having bowel movements in his nappy or pants.
He is on 1/2 sachet of Movicol a day as per our HV advice, if we kept him in nappies he would easily poo every day but we don't want to keep relying on nappies as it makes him lazy with weeing. He is about to start a new school (nursery level) too and I don't want to be sending him in wearing nappies.
I just don't know what to do. We've tried rewards, bubbles and balloons to get his muscles pushing, book reading, games. We have started setting an hourly timer where we sit him down on the potty too. He just holds it in though. We are now 3 days gone without a bowel movement.
What on earth can we do now?!
