Save your money buying toilet books and poo stories use the one in this personalised for your child. If you use the book and with your GP's help it will change your situation totally.
Not knowing why we had these problems since the nappies went and not knowing which was was right (star charts, rewards,telling off, ignoring) this book has been a revelation. There was a whole chapter which could have been written for my child. Accidents and "I didn't feel it" are common daily vocab for us and to hear that it is so common amongst other children took a weight off me. It made me less concerned that medically there was something amiss or psycologically there was something wrong. My GP has said it was behavioural and I did doubt her but now I know she was correct all along.
I photocopied some of this book to give to my sons teacher on his 1st day, she found it very interesting and passed it on to all the TA's in his class to read.
If your child is witholding (regardless of age) or soiling GET THIS BOOK!!!
We have had great success a week after reading this book, we read The MR Poo story and if you haven't seen enough poo there is a chart of healthy to unhealthy stools. All very helpful in no nonsense language. It should be given out on the NHS.
It helped me see and understand things from my daughter's point of view and gave me hope that there was light at the end of the tunnel - even if the tunnel might be long. It gave me some different approaches to try and helped us all relax about the situation which helped too.
8 months later my daughter is no longer with holding her poos or constipated and has been going on the toilet daily without any fuss for over 3 months now. I never thought we would arrive here and it has changed our lives.
A great book and highly recommended.
A trip to Germany brought the solution: She was in so much pain that we had to go and see a doctor, he examined her, talked to us and presrciped Movicol Paediatric Plain. Now 19 months old she has to take one sachet diluted in water every day but she does not seem to mind, in fact she can now finally go every day and there is no more crying.
When researching Movicol Paediatric Plain we came across this book and bought it straight away (Movicol PP is mentioned as one of the poss. laxatives). The book was a complete eye opener and within five minutes we knew more than any of the GPs had told us before. The first eye opener: it is ok to give your child laxatives long term if they need them, it's safe. The second eye opener: most parents think their child is constipated, in fact they are withholding stool. They are essentially afraid of pooping.Read more ›
