My master 2.9 asked to go in undies 2 weeks ago. Cool I thought but after 4 days he ended up with an infection under his foreskin and it really hurt him to do #1s. After that he would walk around all day trying not to go and holding his crutch till he just couldn't hold on anymore and wet himself. After 7 days he asked for a nappy so we let him go back in them. After another 3 days he refused to let me put a nappy on and we went back to undies. Its been 4 days and he has only got 1 wees on the loo (yesterday) and that was by accident as we were on our way there to try and he just couldn't hold on anymore!! So mummy got all excited and he got a reward for being such a big boy but then the rest of the day it was just accident after accident. This morning the same...he is just holding onto his crutch and groaning cos he really needs to go but he is just holding onto it. I just don't know what to do from here? I have some people saying make him go back in nappies and some (daycare!) saying don't give up but this can't be good for him holding on to it for so long...not too mention how awful it looks him holding his crutch all day!!!

My son does the same thing. I asked his doctor about it and she said that it is just lazyness! And if he has to go he will go. But yours is probably afraid to go because it hurt the last time. So I would try making if fun for him. Like make up a game or something.
