My DS2 is 3.4 and is pooing in his pants daily. He has never managed a poo on the loo or potty that didnt start in his pants (and usually manages to squeeze out the tiniest amount for the toilet/potty, if anything).
I am at the end of my tether as he drip feeds these poos; so he will do a small one in his pants, I will sit him on the loo (for a good 20 mins), he cries to come off (without doing anything), in the end I let him, then he poos again in the fresh pants, then I sit him on the loo (nothing), then he cries to come off, more poo in pants....Friday was literally all day long and the first incident made us late for DS1's school.
It is infuriating and I end up shouting. Then I feel awful. But it dominates the day.
Anyone else had this and solved it? Bribes are not working. Getting cross certainly isn't. It is only at the end of the day in his night nappy that he really lets rip with a proper, full on poo. He doesn't seem at all constipated as the poos are pretty soft.
Thanks kotinka, but I'm not sure this can be the case as his nappy poos are perfectly big and complete. When in nappies he would just poo once or twice a day. It is only now he is in pants that we have these issues. I can't put him back in as he starts pre-school soon.
