My four year old is only having a BM at night, while asleep, in a pull up. I've taken the diapers away, but it just creates more mess than help. What do I do?

help him, have looser stools, he is probably afraid to poo, and when he is asleep his body relaxes and the stool moves and is able to come out... but if his stools were softer he would perhaps go #2 during the day. give him orange juice for breakfast, don't give him cheese, and limit milk (of course give him some). give him things that will help loosen his stool a little more... once he is over his fear of pooping, he'll be ok...
