Hi, I got the same issue with my 2.5 yo. he understands the potty thing but won't go on it very often. he goes just before bath. when I want to let him run around without the nappy, he climbs back onto the changetable, demanding that I put a nappy on him. He is also constantly constipated and that since birth. the first months he would only ever poo every 2 weeks (breastfed only). and now, every poop is a matter of hours for him to push out and it must hurt him quite badly. so I can understand that he doesn't want to go on the potty... They all will eventually though, so I wouldn't stress too much. good luck!

My son just turned 3 and still won't. He asks for a diaper every time he needs to go. We put one on him otherwise he will hold it. He refuses to wear a diaper any other time. Other moms have told me they have experienced the same thing and eventually they will go on the potty when you ask. Now before we put a diaper on him we always ask if he will sit on the potty but he says no. Some things others have said worked was having him sit on a potty the same time you are, taking books or videos in the bathroom while he tries.. Good luck
