Getting my 3 year old to poop in the toilet

My 3yr old has been potty trained for a year now and he is having problems bm in the toilet. He keeps holding it so bad he gets constipated. We have tried treats toy everything to get him to poop in the toilet. He has always had problems with bm and is on medicine to help him but then its so soft from the med that he just feels like he is passing gas but he is actually pooping. Does anyone have any advice..?

  • I hear so many moms of little boys say that. I've heard it has something to do with them feeling they are losing a part of themselves (?) I don't get it, but I am assuming it's a phase that he will grow out of.
