My son is a little over 2 and a half (obviously, hes born in the same month as your children.) Anyways Hes been toilet trained during the day for at least 6 months now but he still refused to do a poo on the toilet. I dont understand WHY hes not going. I know that learning #2s take longer then #1s. The thing is though, he knows when he doing a poo (he will go and hide.) if you ask him "Malakai where do you do poo's" he will reply with "poo goes in the toilet." So what other connections is he missing? I just dont understand. Please help.

Funny, I came on here searching for answers to the same issue! Especially since we just had a #2 accident! I don't get it!!! We started potty training over Thanksgiving and for 2 weeks he was a pro! Both #1 and #2 in the potty! (I thought, Wow this was easy) Never should of thought that, because we are back to pooping in our underwear! When asked why? He says...ucky...and poop goes in potty! But why do we do so well with one and awful with the other????? Mom is lost and frustrated!!!!!

OMG! Jessa, I am having the exact same problem with DD. We have tried candy, stickers, toys, bribes and anything else we can think of. She wears panties all day. She gets a diaper for naps and night time. She hates wearing them so she takes them off as soon as she wakes up. She also goes and hides when she poops in her pants. Then comes running out and wants her panties changed. I am at a loss! I hope someone here can come up with something! Good luck and remember "this too shall pass" :).

hes wearing undies all day everyday. As I said before, I have caught him trying to poo while wearing undies and put him on the toilet but once hes there he says he doesnt need to go anymore.

Is he pooing in the undies or nappy. If the undies then watch for the signs and put him on. I would give my daughter activities while on the toilet to take her mind of it so it would just come. It only takes a few successes in the toilet for them to get the hang of it. If he is going in a nappy (pull ups are the same as a nappy) then put one on when he is asleep and remove as soon as he wakes. He will then have no choice but to go in the toilet. Good luck toilet training is never easy.

persistence. It took a while for my son to lean what it was they were ment to be doing on there.. just loads of encouragement rewards and take him often. I found my son was doing wees at least every 30 mins when i 1st started the whole process.

yeah we do the whole rewards stuff.. he has a sticker chart from when we started TT at the very begining. he knows he gets 1 sticker for doing a wee on the loo and two if he does a poo. weve tried chocolate and candy.

lol, this doesn't really help. but my daughter learned as i would let her walk around with no pants on (the only way i would know she had to go) and one day she was grunting so i asked if she had to go potty she said no so i went to get her she started pooping on the floor so mid poo i put her on her potty and she has went on the potty since.....lol took some praising afterwards but was worth it. p.s. i had her potty in the living room for that reason.

I reward my son by doing treats. He is doing so well with potty training because of it. Some days he go's into his pull ups more then other and I tell him he wont get a treat and he will start going on the potty again. We use M&M's but if you don't want to do candy just find something he like's to reward him.



Good luck I hope I was some help
