My son just turned 4 and wears big boy undies during the day and pees in the potty with no accidents but will grab a pullup if he has to poop or he will just poop in his undies sometimes. He has pooped in the potty probably 5 times in the past 6 months but that is it. It seems like he is afraid to poop in the potty. Now he does also hold it in for sometimes a week cause he had a hard time going one time and it hurt so he tries to hold it in so it won't. Bribery or star charts don't work. It seems he is doing it sometimes to be funny also so I just stopped worrying about it and telling him to just go in his pants if he wants. So frustrated. Any feedback.
