Our son has a habit of holding… his poop… for days. He will just not go, in a diaper or toilet.
Well, recently he was on a 4 day holding marathon (he’s done up to 7 days, ugh).
After days of him being ridiculously grumpy and suffering from holding it we managed to get him on the toilet. We had to offer a tremendous amount of incentive to get him to sit and try.
After 10 minutes it actually happened, he was able to push it out and earn himself a Thomas the Train metal engine (Hiro), a book (also Thomas the Train), and a Thomas the Train Mini. Ugh, so much for just pooping… But hey, he did it!
It may seem like such a simple thing but it was a big win in our house.
Oh, and can you tell he digs Thomas the Train? #obsessed
