Hi! I'm new to this group...my name is Tiffany and I have a 3 year old son, Aron and a 9 month old daughter, Hannah. I'm a sahm and love it most days! I do need some advise from some more experienced moms. This question may have come up before on here but being a busy mommy I am just too...shall we say...lazy, impatient maybe...to look ;)
My son has been peeing in the potty for months now. He doesn't wear pull ups to bed or at nap time or when we travel. But I cannot for the life of me get him to poop in the potty!! I'm at my wits end with this. He's not afraid of the potty or anything like that. I mean he's been standing over one peeing for so long now. He's even pooped in it 3 times early on. Now he refuses. He begs for a pull up when he needs to poop. I've bribed him with things, doesn't work. Candy doesn't work, toys don't work. I can only afford so much ya know! lol...I've even taken the pull ups out of the drawer and hid them but he won't go! He went for 2 days and I caved....I felt terrible and he's so stubborn. I really need any advise...good or bad you can give. And I really really appreciate the help! Thanks a million!
