A couple of days after my son turned 3 i decided to just put underwear on him and see how he does. Today is day two, Day one he peed on the potty all day but never pooped that day. Now its day two and he says he has to poop but he wont go on the potty he asked for a diaper on to poop. i dont wanna go back wards and put a diaper on. but i dont want him holding his poop in and not going where hes gonna be constitpated. what do i do?

My. Problem is he was constipated three weeks ago and i took him to the er to have a enema and ever since he hasnt been pooping right. I use miralaxto help him but his poop is very watery when he does go. I want him to poop so he doesnt get backed up again. I dont want him holding it in. And he still pees in underwear occasionally and the other half he will go on potty. So when were out in public idk if i should chance him in diaper or underwear. Ugh potty training is hard lol.

well my son gets constipated to and did you know that with boys if you r that it can numb the urethra and cause him not to feel that he has to pee??? and use chocolate EX LAX one little bar everyday in the morning and see if that helps of he gets to runny go to a half of one,, when you open it you ll see little tiny bars read it my son has to do this every once in a while now and if you go get fiber bars the ones that r brownie have him eat one or two a day like one in the morning fiber make you poop

i wouldnt put a diaper back on him i would tell him we are a big boy now and big boys go in the potty i would say i wouldnt even have them in the house cause he can see them and ask for them you know the saying out of site out of mind lol and if he does hold it i dont think he can hold it so long that it would hurt him i think that he would just poop in his under wear and he wouldnt like it and start going in the potty but if you give him the choice to have a diaper then why would he want to go poop in the potty i have a 10 year old and he was going down that path as a baby but i did the same thing and for my nephew to but with him he pooped in his under wear and freaked out cause he got batman dirty haha caus ei told him that you dont want to poop or pee in your underwear cause they wil get wet and dirty lol after once of pooping he never did it agian and he peed once to and never did that eother i wish it was that easy for the other kids i helped train lol but i have a baby girl to that is turning 1 soon so hope for the best
