My oldest daughter did this... she would hold it and hold it until it really hurt to get it out. 

It could also be some sort of medical condition..so..I dunno.  Give him prunes.

I used a booger sucker and put warm water and squirted it up there. Two seconds later, the poop literally came flying out. My mom did that to me when I was a baby. I tried it and it worked.

the only thing that worked when my son was severely constipated were the glycerin suppositories, they hurt like hell for him while they were getting his poop out, and made his stomach cramp like hell, but they worked, it took an hour or two, but worked

Have you tried apple juice or prune juice?? Also, any fruit with a "P": peaches, pears, plums. Hope this helps!

You can try a warm bath, the warm water will help to relax those muscles.  You can also try a rectal thermometer, it's a natural reflex to push it out so he will just use those muscles. 

Just so you know, you can give him miralax everyday for a little while to help loosen it up.  2 of my kids were on it for about 2 weeks and I had to take them off because they started exploding.

Hope he feels better.

I've had this happen with both of my girls. I've had to just get a Q-Tip and literally chisel away as the poop to help it come out. It's not fun, but it offers them some relief where they can get the smaller pieces out themselves.

I have done this too... but to an infant. Not sure how a 3 year old will handle it. But it is worth a try. You don't have to squirt it too forcefully.

My little girl threw up from prune juice too. We have used pedialax made by fleet... it's a dissolvable strip taken by mouth. It helped addison greatly... in fact, she filled up 4 diapers that day.
