It seems that the problem is that for some reason your son is keeping his stools in. This is causing him to become constipated.Is there any possible reason that could have caused your son to go backwards as regards his toilet training? Make sure that he is on a fibre rich diet and gets plenty of fruit to eat. Do not give him any hard cheese.Give him Duphalac liquid 5ml twice daily for 14 days and see if he becomes more regular. If not continue on a once daily dose of Duphalac 5ml daily until he seems to settle into a good routine again.
