My son, who is 3 years 9 months old, has been peeing on the potty for almost a year. But, I can't get him to poop on the potty! He went one time on his own, I put the potty in front of the tv and left it and he finally just went. (When my 2 year old was napping b/c if he were up he would of thought it was to play with.) Then he was afraid to go it again. I got him to poop on it another time by putting a diaper on him and cutting a hole out in the back. He was fine and proud of himself, but he won't do that again! He pees in the regular potty, but the two times he pooped it was in the baby potty. He won't even think of pooping on the regular potty, even with the seat you put on it for kids. I know this is a somewhat common problem and I even asked a Psychologist and he said not to be concerned until he is 4, but I was wondering if anyone had suggestions?
