I'm with ya, Mom!!! Riley is 6 and he does the same thing. One thing that we tried (and works if we stick to it) is get him on a schedule. I sit him on the potty every evening before his bath and make him grunt. I watch and if I see poop, I have him sit there until he goes. After he gets out of the bath, I have him drink a glass of apple juice.
Have you tried Miralax? When you go to your pedi, ask him about trying that. It's not a harsh laxative and basically works by pulling more water into the bowels.

I'm glad you posted this because I understand your frustration. Encopresis is very common in little boys, though. KUP on what the pedi says.
