Holding in #2

Jessica - posted on 06/16/2011 ( 1 mom has responded )




My 3 year old son has been battling with holding in his poop for over a year now. All started from a painful bout of constipation and now he is just afraid...which makes it worse. We are in the process of potty training and if he has a good week with going to the bathroom he has no problem going on the potty. I have tried it all. Thought i was in the clear a few weeks ago but it started up again. Will he grow out of this?

oh I am sorry to hear that! That must be so uncomfortable to the little guy. When our kids would get constipated my husband would lay them down & massage their belly so that whatever was "clogging them up" could soften up & come out easier (hopefully). I know it's not much advice but it's the only thing that I can think of to maybe help. Good luck with finding a solution!
