3 Year old not fully trained? HELP
He has had pooping problems he is fully pee trained, but when it comes to poop he holds it in. (which he is getting better at he has gone 2 times on the toilet) BUT WE had to give him mirilax for a little while because he was getting so backed up. HELP what do I do? Right now I am just happy when he goes so I don't push him to go on the toilet should I be pushing it more?

I suggest prune juice to keep him soft. Then, scheduled toilet times, if he's not freaking out. My mom would give me a book. I also suggest adding probiotics to his diet. I give all my non-nursing children Kid's N Megaflora ( and papaya enzymes. He'll get it, just don't let him with hold. Bowel issues effect all body systems.

Just help him to relax, no pressure, just calmness and say something like "let it go" or grunt right along with him :).

I heard an idea once that I thought was very clever- someone's son had an aversion to pooping, so they got him a remote control car to use on the toilet. He loved it and was more willing to attempt pooping!
