3 yr old not pooping

My 3 yr old grandson is potty trained but holds his poop. He has not gone for a week. Should my daughter take him to doctor? He holds it...but I suspect now he may have become constipated. Any suggestions?

Re: 3 yr old not pooping

I would definitely call his doc. It can be very dangerous to hold your poop. I would suggest some Miralax and maybe a little bribe if he starts pooping on the potty. Nothing major, just reward him for pooping - a favorite show, a special treat, etc.
