Potty training and poos.

My boy is trained apart from an occasional accident when we're at toddler group or if I'm in the house and he's in the garden, but he will not poo in the potty or toilet. He did it once and was very upset to see it in the potty then he refused to wee on top of it. He has done two poos in the toilet since then and we praised him etc and gave him a chocolate treat, but since then he either does it in his pants or waits until night time and does it in his nappy. Anyone got any tips or advice? I've thrown away so many pairs of pants cos I don;t want to carry then home!

Oh Jodie Im glad I read this I am having trouble with my daughter she will go to day care and not use one pull up and when we are out she stays dry or goes to the toilet, But when we are home she refuses to go on the toilet, I think she is just being stubbon as she knows when she needs to go but won't get on the toilet because I have told her too very frustrating, So I am going to give it a go what you did Cheers

I really feel for you I am going through this with my daughter . She will poo in her pants then take them off because she doesnt like it. I have tryed alot of different things and was almost ready to give up but a few days ago I tried taking away her fav things . Every time she had a whoops I would take another thing away and put it up so she could see it but not get it . I know it sounds so mean . But when she would go on the potty she would get one back. It really worked for us , she used the potty all day with only one whoops. Also my older daughter took a bit to train with the poo because she was scared of it . Dont give up . Good luck .

Maybe put him in pull-ups for a while. Some kids have trouble with #2, it may just take him a bit longer to get that part down.
