It’s taken a long time to toilet train & my son now does wees on the toilet/potty fine. However, he refuses to sit down to do a poo & is insistent on standing in a nappy. We’ve been working on this for a long time & are supported by a continence nurse. He’s on lactulose & started a small dose of Senokot recently. For a short while he would stand until he was ready, wearing a pull up & then sit down on the potty to poo in it, but we’ve now gone backwards & while he’ll sit down on the potty nothing happens & he’s just waiting until he can get back up again. He’s got a psychological block about sitting to poo. We’re trying sitting in a pull up.
I’m beginning to feel that some of this is about control & we are giving too much attention to the issue. It’s taking over family life. Has anyone got any other suggestions of things that worked for them?
