My 5 year old still insists on removing all his clothes to go poop on the potty will he grow out of it?

My son will only poop on the potty if he's naked, he won't go poop while we're out running errands because he can't get naked. I assumed when he was potty training that this was normal but now I'm wondering if he's ever going to grow out of it! Any other moms experience this?

Lol! Yes! He'll outgrow it.. it's just a matter of 'when'. My son did the exact same thing, even for pees! It was incredibly annoying for sometime because he didn't know how to dress himself. I kept trying to show him that he didn't have to take it all off, but he insisted on it.

But eventually he figured it out and he also figured out how to put his pants and underwear back on. So we haven't had any problems since. Just keep trying to show him he doesn't have to take them all the way off.
