my child won't poop. he's 5 years old. says it hurts. squeezes his legs together and poops in his pants when he can no longer hold it in. won't go on the potty. had never pooped on the potty. doesn't want to poop. Any significant help with sensory treatments?

Bowel Withholding Children's Book

Our daughter (who has SPD) also struggled with the challenges of bowel withholding. Despite endless Google searches and countless calls to her pediatrician, none of the recommendations produced the desired results. We finally introduced (prescription) Miralax and a friend gave us a fabulous book..."I Can't, I Won't, No Way!: A Book For Children Who Refuse to Poop". Our daughter LOVED the story (written from a child's perspective) and locked into the colorful illustrations... might not solve the problem but, will definitely help!!!

Good Luck!
