I am Mum to a gorgeous 4 year old boy who has just started school. We've been trying to toliet train for 18 months, but never cracked poos until the summer, when we finally had a break through and had 3 weeks of clean pants. But starting school, soiling has recommenced and he is having accidents everyday. We've been referred to bladder and bowels service for possible constipation issues but still waiting to hear from them and also on laxatives. Thing is, our son has very rarely had hard poos. His poos are always loose and he goes multiple times a day.
My husband and I are really struggling with it all because he is very good at home and rarely has accidents. Nursery always said he soiled because he didn't want to stop what he was doing to use the toilet and HV agreed. Now we're worried something else is at play. It's just so disheartening as we seem to have taken 10 steps backwards and making no progress.
No question as such, but I guess we're after support and solidarity as close to breaking point.
