My four year old son has issues with pooping in the potty. He has had painful experiences before because he does like to food with fiber. Given him foods, benefiber and even stool softener to make it easier for him. He holds it in until he can't and ends up crying on the potty where he bleeds a little. Need advice fast. I can't watch my son fear pooping or cry in pain. Please help me.Answer Question

My son is 4 1/2 and is having trouble with pooing in the potty. He has really bad constipation problems He was really early and had some issues. I had to use fleet enemas and suppositories just to get him to go.
Now that he is a little older, I too have used Mira-lax with permission from his doctor. I also give him apple juice with baby food prunes in it when we are not at home. It helps keep him soft, so he doesn't bleed
If it continues to become an issue I would consult his doctor
