Will he go in a nappy or on the floor crouched over a nappy. Is he scared of the toilet / sitting on the toilet?

For now I'd let him do anything that gets him pooing again.

Has pooing hurt before because of constipation so he is stopping himself?

He will not go anywhere yes hes been constipated b4 and is really scared of the toilet he does go eventually after about a week of crying and running about the house i really have tried everything I know xx

Hi. There is a book by sophia Ferguson "stool withholding" which I think would really help you. You can get it from Amazon. X
