My son is almost 4 years old and is still holding his poop in. He has been on Miramax for a while now but we were trying to figure out how much to give him and when to give him only due to the fact that it gave him diarrhea at the beginning.
Now he is still holding his poop and he is severely backed up that caused him to throw up. Also he doesn't want to eat nothing but chips and other junk food. We are trying a teaspoon a day sometimes twice a day. The biggest thing is that he is constantly crying due to the fact that he needs to poop but doesn't want to.
Another thing is when we try to start potty training he doesn't tell us that he needs to go to the potty and he doesn't mind having a wet pull-up and only pulls at his pull-up after he does poop a little bit.
Please help. I'm afraid that he won't be able to go to kindergarten in a couple of years due to the fact that he will not go to the potty like a big boy.
My husband decided yesterday when he got home from work to leave off my son's pull-up until bedtime. I didn't think that it would work and there would be pee and poop everywhere but it did work. By bedtime he had pooped 4 times in his training toilet that you can buy from Walmart. We are still giving him his medicine but we are going in the right direction. Yay.
