i had this same problem with my daughter. she would go pee in the potty no problem but not poop. i posted the question on here and the BEST advice that i got was to give her grape juice straight- not diluted. welches makes one with added fiber. give him a few 8 oz glasses of that in a day and he will have no choice but to go.

my daughter started holding it cause she could tell we were mad that she wouldn't poop in the potty. after 2 days of giving her the grape juice...she was pooping in the potty. and she has ever since.

it will be messy at first but eventually he will do it.

Jodie...I just stopped buying them. If he doesn't like the poo on him he will dislike it when u make him sit on it. Get a trash bag, sit him in a corner and let him sit there for about 5 mins to smell it and soak in what he's done. My 3 year old was trained right when he turned two, of course we had a few accidents, but he HATED THE SMELL OF IT, and like I said before, make up in your mind not to buy anymore!! It worked for me, I am a workin mother, so my sitter and I worked together and he was trained in no time!!
