#2 Potty Training a 2 year old

Kathryn - posted on 10/04/2009 ( 1 mom has responded )




My son turned 2 this past August. We started potty training him when he was 1 1/2 year. He will pee in the potty every time. he tells us and will even strip down and go on his own (he wont let us help, he's a 'big boy'). but we cant get him to poop on the potty. he has even gotten down from the potty and went on the floor! We dont want to stress it cause it will only cause him to stress, so when he goes in his diaper we just go 'oops, o well we will have to try again later' and go from there. Any ideas how to help me son go #2 in the potty???????

I am having the same problem with my 2 year old right now! If she has an accident I clean her up, put her back in panties and keep telling her that she needs to go poop in the potty. Going poop in the potty is scary to them because they are so used to just going anywhere and sitting low to the ground. Going poop in the potty is always the last thing they accomplish! I know I have 5 kiddos!! If anyone else has any advice on how to help with this I would love to know!! :)
