I am potty training my 3.5 year old. He hasn’t had a pee accident in about a week but pooing is another story. He doesn’t want to go on the potty but has gone twice on the potty. When he poos in his undies we stay very calm and just take him to the toilet flush it down and say big boys go on the potty. We have tried very hard to not make him feel bad about not wanting to poo in the potty. I understand it’s really hard for boys to feel comfortable pooing in the toilet. We are on vacation now and since he is usually around people he hasn’t pooped in 4 days (today will be the 5th day). Last night I put a pull up on him and gave him a laxative. I told him that when he had to poo it was ok if he had to use the pull up because at this point I really just want him to relieve himself. Well he managed to hold it even with the laxative. Now I’m getting nervous and not sure what to do. Any advice would be great at this point and when do I start to really worry?
