Back to poty training

My 3yr old son was able to use the toilet on his own until this Wednesday when he had diorrhia(spelling), I took him to the doctor. Now he just stand there and do number one and two in his bedroom with his clothes on. He refuse to wee when I remined him.

Why is he behaving like this? please help.

Your son probably still has a gastro infection as he has suddenly started to behave in this way.Do not give him any fruit or fruit juice for at least 3 days. Give him frequent sips of Rehidrat solution in order to replace lost fluid and body salts.Read the instructions on the packet.
