Kate, mom to 7 year old Djuna and 4 yr old Alden. Missing our good friend Hal the cat who died June 2, 2010
Not sure that I have advice but my son has constipation problems as well. We got a book called It Hurts When I Poop. It's a story about how it's important to take care of your body and get rid of the waste. My son liked the story (not that great imo but it was effective for him) and talked about it and it's something we can refer to when talking about going poop.
In the book they also suggest as the pp said a few times a day to sit on the potty, when we did this dh would bring a car or toy or we'd read books together so he wasn't sitting in there by himself or feeling like it was a forced issue.
