    My youngest son is 2.5 and has started smearing his poop everywhere whenever he poops. He is still in nappies and is nowhere near ready for potty training due to being almost none verbal and developmentally delayed. It’s now also like he makes himself poop to do this as he’s going 5 or 6 times each day. I’ve contacted his health visitor but heard nothing back yet. I just don’t know how to stop him doing this

    My son went through a short phase doing that and my child minder showed me how to manage it, by dressing him in dungarees so that he can’t get his hand into his nappy.

    Also by wearing baby grows with the poppers on the back at night.

    And then lots of distractions and keeping him busy so he has something much more tempting to do.

    Could you try that?
