OT- 3.5 and not using the bathroom (TMI poop warning)
Ok, so DS has been great at the potty for the past 6 months +. Barely ever an accident except for the occasional "I got distracted playing and peed".
The last 4 days he has pooped on the floor each day. The first two I understood, he had diareahea and he tried so hard to make it there. I felt bad for him, he even tried to clean it up himself (so sweet, yet gross at the same time, lol!)
But, yesterday he was running around naked and pooped under the kitchen table. He said "it just came out mommy", but he wasn't trying to make it to the bathroom either.
Then this morning he came downstairs without his pullup on, which isn't unusual. If he pees in it over night he is pretty good at taking it off himself and throwing it away. He's laying in bed with us and I'm asking him where is 'night-night' diaper is and he says I peed and pooped. So of course the poop part I inquired about.
"Did you poop in your diaper?"
"no mommy, on the stairs"
"why didn't you use the potty?"
"It just came out on its own"
Yep, there was poop on the stairs and he ran to show me where he left it.
Not sure if this is something I need to worry about or just a fluke that will go away. I can tell you I am very tired of picking up poop. I feel like we have a puppy and not a little boy running around.
