My 3-year-old son has been totally potty-trained since last summer. For the last week and half or so he has been wetting himself frequently and pooping himself once a day. Today he pooped himself twice! He finds it funny! He does say sorry and promises he won't do it again but he always does. I really don't know what to do, I have tried asking him why he does it but them he just pretends to be a cat! (That's his thing at the mo!)

Any suggestions?

I don't know. I wish I had an answer. My son, who will be three in April, has been doing the same thing. He poops every time (just nap and bed time) he has a pull up on. I have spanked him, given him a cold shower, rewarded him for pooping in the toilet.....nothing works. Praying it's a phase.
