After he was potty trained, his teacher said he never went at daycare and around the age of 4 he started having accidents occasionally. The accidents became more frequent around 5 or so and that's when I started researching and took him to the doc and they said it was Encopresis (which I had already found out myself).
Anyway, he's been on Miralax since then but I don't give it daily as I should. I keep track of his poops and if he goes more than 3 days or so, I start the Miralax.
I'm posting this because of a conversation my son and I just had. I think in the back of my mind I knew his 'withholding' had to do with him not wanting to go in public but he finally confirmed that. I
I told him as I have before that it's ok to poop away from home (school, granny's house, dad's house, etc.). Maybe this will be the time that sinks in so we can beat this issue. The good thing is that he hasn't had an accident in about 2 years...YAY!!
