This is nothing to do with weight loss or exercise but you all have so much advice, I thought I'd ask for some help.
Over the last week and a half, my 2.5 year old son has become very aware of needing to go to the toilet and has been going on the 'big toilet'. He's now very paranoid about doing anything in his nappy and wants it changed every bloody 5 minutes.
3 days ago, he started acting a little strange around the big toilet and now will not go anywhere near it - he says he's scared. We've tried evrything; stickers and stamps if he sits on it; praise; sitting near him and singing; leaving him alone on the toilet; making a big fuss; trying not to make too much of a fuss; rewards of frozen yogurt if he goes etc etc etc.
He has also been more adventurous when it comes to his eating -0 over the last week, he has been eating carrot, celery, lots of different fruit. lettuce and red & orange capsicum.
He is now pooing every 2 days instead of every day and when he does, they are very hard and he cries his little heart out because it hurts! He tries to hold on all day because he doesn't want it to hurt, doesn't want to poo in his nappy and doesn't want to go on the toilet.
It is breaking my heart not being able to help him and I don't want his 'phobia' to get any worse.
Many of you have kids. Can anyone give me any advice as to how I might help relieve my little boy? I'm deperate.
