We asked our Facebook Likers to post their potty training worries and allow other parents who had experienced the same thing t0 offer solutions as part of a ‘Potty Training SOS’ series.
Here’s what you had to say…
“My daughter is 3 and won’t poop anywhere else but home and it’s getting bad she is very constipated then when she finally goes she is crying and screaming. It breaks my heart but she won’t listen when I say it’s ok to poop anywhere that isn’t home and no one has to know.”
Gemma: My little boy will only poo if he is at home or Nanny and Grandad’s (both sets), and if we go on holiday it takes a day but will never go if at shops or anything.
Colleen: Witholding is common in young children. If it becomes a problem see your GP.
