Re: What to do, what to do....just doesn't want to poo....(in the toilet)

We had the worse time with DS, too. Is it uncomfortable for him to go? DS would hold it until it was hard, and only relaxed enough when sleeping to go. We had to start giving him stool softeners ( can mix it with juice) to help. He's 4 and STILL on a "poop schedule" he doesn't seem to feel the urge to go, so we put him on at 815, and give him a drink (it helps him ) on the potty, and he goes. If he does a big one, he doesn't have to do it again. If he doesn't, he sits again at 2:15 (or any time he's not acting like himself..that usually indicates that he needs to go). Good luck. It's SO FRUSTRATING!
