my child poo his pants and wanted to know if i could use pullups

While absorbent pants can be used to manage both urinary and bowel incontinence; it is important to look at the causes as well as how best to manage the situation. It is unclear from your question whether your child is experiencing bowel issues during the day or night. I would recommend given your son is over the age of 4 years that you follow this up with your GP as it may be the result of an underlying medical condition such as chronic constipation which is easily treatable. All the best! Regards, Dr Cathrine
