Over the past few months my sons bowel movements have decreased. Initially I thought it was his diet (picky eater) so I increased his fiber and even got him snacking on prunes. No change.
I starting getting quite concerned (well, still am!) but I've noticed every few days he will come up to me crying saying ouchies and clenching his bottom. His next nappy change (yes, still in nappies ) there is usually a small poo mark and his bum needs to be cleaned.
When he does go he struggles and there is a huge amount of poo when he's finished. It's very solid as well. He had a bout of constipated just before all this started happening so I'm wondering if he's now too scared to poo?
Has anyone's child been through this before? Is it even possible for him to hold it? What can I do to help him?
