Potty training toddler, constipation, grey stool, less fluids

Hi there, I am potty training my toddler who will be 3 years old in June. He used to drink lots of all types of fluids in a day. Since I have started potty training, he is drinking less and his stool is hard, grey and small. How do I get him to drink more, he doesn t seem to want to drink as much anymore and I am concerned about this constipation and grey colored stool. Sincerely J Wareing

Do not be too much worried about toilet trainig of you child and type and consistancy of stool .Too much of in take of liquid does not make stool soft It is myth .
Simple way is to keep your anxiety down of pushing too much liquid and solid in the mouth of child every time and all the time .
growing children are very moody and they do not want to do want parents want them to do
.You have to learn to adjust with the child mood ;Change type of solid food stuff which may make stools soft
Please do not use laxative
