Just wondered if anyone had any experience of this. DS toilet trained quite late but picked it up very quickly. He will be fine for a few weeks, but then reverts back to this for a few weeks and will then be fine again. We have parents evening on Monday and it just happened at school for the first time (been happening at home for a few days).I'm really embarrassed! He refuses point blank to eat any fruit or veg so I'm not sure if he's constipated and this is contributing to the problem. Any advice?

Hi, it may just be he is unfamiliar with toilet routine at school or is a bit poorly .... but if it continues regularly - and as someone who has struggled for years with this I suggest you keep a close eye on diet - fruit/veg is important, as is lots of fibre and liquid - but if you think he is constipated regularly would go see doctor before it becomes more serious.
