Potty Time Tuesday!




Well my boy in training is Joshua and man is he doing good! We are only having one issue and that is always pooping in the potty! He has NO issues with urine, but poop is another story. He did go one day at day care last week, but he doesn't want to go there, because he doesn't want help. At home I make him sit on the potty in the morning and afternoon, sometimes this helps sometimes it doesn't! Does anyone have a suggestion?

i have no tips, lydia was the same way. nothing worked, she would run downstairs + pull on a pull-up to go. eventually it just clicked and she stopped.

Man, I don't know what to tell you??? Yes I have 4 boys, 3 out of the 4 are potty trained but I do remember going poop was the hardest!!!!!! my third son was petrified to go poop on the toilet,and he would hold it!!!!ARGGG so I would have to give him a sapository to get him to go on the potty, that is what I recall doing with alot of them. I would just give them the sepository and then sit them on the toilet so the brain made the connection with pooping in the toilet. I know each child is different and we have to do what works for them. Good luck!! that is great though that he is doing so well on the peeing!!!! :) I will be in your position this summer/fall trying to potty train my 2 year old!!! :(

My daughter was the opposite. She always pooped never peed on the potty. Sorry no advise for teaching boys but good luck I'm sure he'll get it soon.

I think your best bet would be to put him on the potty as often as you can and tell him that it is okay to go poopie on the potty. My oldest (girl) used to hold her poop in when she was little. I don't know if she was afraid or what it was. We gave her Karo Syrup and that seemed to help.

My son likes to sit on the potty. He even asks to go potty but I can't get him to sit very long. So he hasn't gone yet. Any tips to get your child to sit longer? I tried using a belt to buckle him in but he just cries the whole time and I don't want him to develop a fear of the potty.

Maybe you could give him some special rewards for going poop on the potty for a while until he is consistently doing it. That seemed to work for my son!

Good for him for at least trying and for peeing. I wish I had some advice for you. My 14 year old has long been past the potty training days, and sadly, I can't even remember when or how I did it w/ him. lol As for Jonah, well, he just turned 2, and has no desire to potty train. Little does he know, he's about to move up to the next class at daycare, and they assure me they will have him potty trained within 6 months. I will believe it when I see it. haha
