I have a 3 year old and he has been potty trained since he was 2yrs old and everything was great he was using the potty with no problems. The last couple of months he has started holding his poop in for 3-5 days and then i would have to place him on the toilet when i noticed him sitting on the floor trying to hold it in. When he is on the toilet it sometimes takes up to 3 hours for him to do anything i feel like a bad mom at times :( when he does sit on the toilet and try he says it hurts to much and that he is scared to poop! im wondering if i should take him to the doctor and get him checked out or if i should wait until he just finally poops. Wondering if any moms out there have had the same promblem and can please help me?????

Its hard sometimes because he is such a picky eater but I will try to give him some fiberous food. Hide them in some food :) thanks for the advice very much appreciated :)

well maybe that's what he means when he says it hurts too much and that he's scared to poo... sometimes kids don't know how to verbalize that. if you try to give him fiberous food items such as grapes, apples, oatmeal, and cut back on cheese

Could be that's what my first thought was he hasn't complained at all of stomach pains or anything in that nature that's what confusing????
