So my son is 2yrs 4 months and he's just recently been potty trained...kind of. He stays dry all day, and goes pee on the potty all day long, but he will not poop on the potty. he was pooping in his underwear twice a day, so now we've been having him wear pull-ups so we don't have tokeep throwing underwear away. he doesn't tell us he has to go, doesn't tell us after he goes, and just walks around with poop until we notice. it's so frustrating because he's diong great peeing on the potty. I just have NO idea how to get him to start pooping on the potty. and now for some reason since he's been in underwear and pull ps he's touching his poop EVERY time he goes and making a huge mess on himself and all over our house with poop. i just need ANY suggestions on how to get him to poop on the potty. thanks!

yes .. let him use the diaper to poop in then ..take it off with him .. walk him to the potty flush the poop and then tell him this is were poopie goes ..wave goodbye to poopie.. and say ok buddy now flush ... also make sure he doesnt have a condition known as cronic constipation . ask you Dr. about it.. he may not know when he has to poop . Good luck!..

I had this same problem. I use to reward my son with a small cookie when he went on the potty, then i only did it when he went poop cuz he wouldn't go poop on the potty. I told him you only get a cookie if you poop on the potty. Honestly he would squeeze out the smallest poop ever just to get a cookie... lol I know rewarding with food is bad, but when you are at the end of ur rope u will try anything lol. Eventually we told him we had no more cookies, and he was like oh ok next time and on we went.
