You're not alone! We have been in underwear since Friday and have yet to poo on the potty either- absolutely no pee accidents at all but no successful poos yet. I like what Jennifer said, hopefully it won't come to that for us,but you never know. Will is 28 months old, still very young for potty training. How old is your son? I'm not too concerned if we don't really become potty trained until around 3 or even a bit later. I think we, as parents, tend to put too much pressure on our kids before they are ready and truly able. Good luck though!

I completely understand what you are going through. My son has been potty trained since September but still will poop in his underwear more often than in the potty. He will even hold it for days just so that he doesn't have to go in the potty. He have tried everything, or so it seems, to convince him that it's ok to go on the potty. We have now just started putting him on the potty and leaving him on there until he poops. I know this sounds bad but when we notice him starting to try to go in his underwear we will take and put him on the potty and tell him that we will be so proud of him if he goes and then we wait and wait and wait. If we leave the room, he will go alot quicker and we always make a huge deal about it. I'm not sure if this helps you or not but just are not alone.
