Son won’t poop on the potty
My 24mo old son is only five days into potty training with the Oh Crap! method. Things are going WAY better than I thought. He hasn’t had a pee accident since the first day. But pooping is a whole different story. He refuses to poop on the potty.. I think he’s scared because it’s such a new feeling. I can recognize when he has to poop and will tell him, “I know you have to poop, let’s go sit on the potty”. He refuses so I tell him, “okay, we will try when you’re ready” and, “remember, poop goes in the potty” (as is suggested in the book). Right now, he’s either holding his poop until his nap or nighttime diaper or he will have an accident in his pants (which doesn’t seem to bother him at all). I’ve also tried giving him privacy, leaving him in the bathroom to pee and poop by himself... it works for pee but never poop. He has never gone to a hiding place to poop, with or without a diaper, but I have tried moving the potty to a dark “secret” corner of the house to no avail. I’m trying to be patient and give him a stress-free, no-pressure environment, but cleaning poop from his pants is already getting old. I didn’t really find any other advice in the Oh Crap! book... anything you all have tried (besides bribery) that has worked to make your child more comfortable pooping into a potty?
