I have 4 kids, a 5yr old boy, 4 yr old boy, 1 1/2 yr old girl, and a 5 month old boy. My 4 yr old has been peeing in the potty for 1 year... except that occasional "I'm gonna pee all over the house to see if anyone cares cuz I don't want to go to the potty stage" but he has not pooped in the potty by himself ever. The only times he has is if I caught him holding it in and ran him to the potty or if we had to give him a suppository or enema because it had been too long . That was probably 6 months ago. Now a few months ago I never caught him holding it in, but i would walk upstairs and would find poop under the beds or wrapped in dirty underwear or just anywhere out of the way that he would try to hide it, but I never caught him holding it in just all of a sudden he would have a "oh ****" look on his face and poop his pants he said he couldn't get ot the potty he was trying but he couldn't make it. That lasted for proabably about a month, now nothing... only a tiny little bit of poop comes out and then he goes to the bathroom and uses an entire roll of toilet paper wiping it and then throwing it on the floor, or someones bed sheets, or shirts or pants left on the floor, basically anything that is left on the floor he wipes his poop on and then never tells me, Including baby blankets... this past sunday he had a suppository because it's been a while since anyone has found anything, well that didn't work, so about 7 hrs later we tried pedialax chewable laxatives, it didn't work either. The next day (monday) the dr. said try miralax he should have a bowel movement by the next day... we are now on day three of miralax and still nothing, i'm starting to lose it and the dr. acts like it's no big freaking deal, but she doesn't sit there for hours with him on the toilet while he screams and cries cuz he doesn't watn to poop... if you even mention the word poop he starts freaking out and crying cuz it's always painful, we have had to use suppositories or enemas for the last month periodically to get anything to help him go. He has been out of a diaper for a year but we recently have even tried that and it doesn't work, he didn't go in that either...
