this is a new concept to me. I had never heard of the term ' Encopresis' before although I know of some people who have suffered from this problem. I did not understand one thing though why are boys more likely to suffer from this disorder? Is there something special/

How does a child develop a fear of the toilet? And why would you need to medicate people for this behaviour? I would have thought that you would provide some exercises to strengthen the bowel muscles. Medicines are harmful and should not be taken in large quantities.

I think the first step towards treating encopresis is to make sure that the child does not get constipated. You must feed your child fibre-rich food such as fruit, green vegetables, etc. Plus, you must also make sure that he consumes a lot of water. This will ensure regular bowel movements and keep constipation away.

I think this article is a real eye-opener as far as this topic is concerned. In such cases, the tendency is to label the child as lazy and punish him for his failure. We do not stop to think for a moment that the child is not at fault. This makes the child more sick and causes him to feel more ashamed of himself.

RE:constipation
When the baby is in discomfort from constipation (especially if she hasn't done some dirty for two days or more), the first thing you should give is a glycerin suppository.... - Su 03 [View Message]
RE:hi
Most doctors say banana doesn't help - the potassium in it makes constipation worse. Remember you can make your own prune puree in a blender. Grape, grapefruit and papaya are also laxative fruits. And remember you can safely use baby suppositories as often as you need to (they also help with "training" the baby to do a dirty at the same time every day)... - Su 03 [View Message]
