he gets the whole getting on the potty concept, because he won't pee on himself. He just won't poop on the potty and whenever it's time for him to do it he wont. They say try to make him feel comfortable but that hasn't helped.

Try taking your child to the bathroom with you. Once you've done your business show your child that it's natural and that big girls and big boys go in the potty. Then have your child try and tell them if they do it right the toilet will "thank them" by splashing their bum with water. Try splashing their bum before hand to show them how the toilet will say thank you. I did this for my son (without candies or treats) and it worked. His reward at the end was getting to wear big boy underware. I hope this helps

My son is 2years and 1month, he is doing the piepie thing in the toilet, but also do not want to phoo in the toilet or in the potty, he wants th phoo outside where the dog is doing it, I do not know, must I leave him for now, must I be more strict. He will always come and tell you he wants to piepie or phoo, and will run to the toilet for the piepie but not for the phoo.

Bribing does the trick. if he poops give him Candy or stickers. Don't put diapers on him he will ask u to put one on him at that point put him on the pot and sit there with him. read a book or something to pass the time till he poops them praise him scream yeah and stuff and give him a treat. Breon likes to give us "5" when he is done then ask for a piece his easter bunny. BRIBING WORKS

My son pooped in the potty a whole 3 times when we first started potty training. But he always got worried when he would see the poo after getting up, he acted like something must really be wrong. With the 3rd time he went poo in the potty he cried afterwards and hasn't done it since. Some people have told me on this site to tell the poo bye bye with him. That telling it bye helps, I think it does to a point, but doesn't fix the situation. I do wonder how pooping in the potty would have gone if I tried saying that from the first time he pooped in the potty. But really I think it's a little early for many 2 yr olds to poop in the potty, I used to have a 2 yr old class (up to 10 kids at a time) and never had one that would consistantly poop in the potty. Some did it a few times, but never stuck with it, it seemed to be more of a discovery thing for them to try and then they would be done with pooping in potties. To get my son and kids I kept to poop in the potty, I would wait until their normal time for that child to go poop. Then I would take them potty and talk about baring down and pushing, while making noises kids do for pooping. It becomes a silly joke and we always have fun, we usually have to repeat it and make several attempts. But eventually they do go, it's just they wouldn't ever stick with it for me. I hope things go well for you, but don't have your heart set on always pooping in the potty just in case he wont start just yet.
