Stop letting him use the pull up. It is hard, but when he is uncomfortable in his big boy underwear when he poops he may realize how nice it is to use the toilet. And never get mad for accidents but rather get excited at the postive times when he uses the potty. We use a sticker/candy systemI hope this hepls:)

Honestly I would put my daughter in time out when she pooped in her pull up. She hated it and would cry forever. She turned 3 in November and she has been potty trained since Christmas. It really works. Sometimes a little spanking might help occassionally.
