Toilet timing? Would that help? You send him to the toilet at regular times when you think he has to do a poo. I can recognize when my daughter has to, for instance, but I can't see on my other kids, so maybe you wouldn't recognize the signs neither.

DISCLAIMER: I don't care if this gets down voted to the basement in hell, if it helps one other person, hopefully the OP, then I'm satisfied.

We would like you to choose to keep yourself and ...

My son has had the same issue since he was born basically. He never really used to the toilet as his large bowel movements were very painful. He is now 10 years old and is going into 5th grade. I can finally say that I can see progress now. We seen tons of doctors, specialist and a lot of trips to the ER and urgent care because he had not had a bowl movement ...
