My daughter since she’s been born she’s struggled with using the toilet or pooping period. We would have to give her suppositories if it really got bad. We’ve tried different medicinal products but still to results. It worries me that she deals with this. Someone mentioned to me before that their daughter struggled with not using the bathroom until the age of 5. My daughter is now 3. I need hel... More
My son is almost 15 months old. I don’t think he’s ready to start potty training quite yet but he might be interested. He always follows me to the bathroom when “mommy has to peepee”. Honestly I might just be nervous because he’s my first and I am clueless. I have no idea where to start! 1. how do I introduce the idea of potty training to him? 2. is it too early to start training boys at this... More
Our son fights us when we ask him to try and use the potty. I don't want it to feel like punishment but he just hates it. We aren't even given the chance to focus on rewards. Any suggestions? 0 potty in the potty today and 4 accidents... hoping tomorrow is a better day.
I have a 4 year old autistic son and we've tried potty training before and he just played in the toilet! So we had to shut it down and lock all bathrooms for a while! Now I'm trying to start again and he has zero interest in sitting on the potty or his training toilet. He just gets up and runs away. He is also non-verbal so it's even more difficult with him! Anyone with suggestions?... More
Hey parents! My twin girls are 15 months old and my mother is REALLY pushing for potty training but I still think they’re too young. They aren’t really interested in the bathroom beyond following me inside and getting under the cupboards. We introduced them to a my sized potty and they pretty much just use it as a stool to stand on. My mom INSISTS that if they aren’t potty trained by the time t... More
My son just turned 3 and we’ve been working on potty training for a while now and we’re all stressed over it. He is great at peeing in the toilet but refuses to go poop.

So my son is three. We been potty training off and on since 2. Recently he has taken a liking to using the potty, and likes to stand and go. I’m glad. But he has his days where he will go every hour for me and then the next day he will only go once or twice. Any suggestions? I want him fully trained so I can put him in the day care by my home.
Hey guys! Ive been potty training my 2yo and we recently decided to stop putting on pull ups for outings. The first couple of times, he would tell us he needed to use the restroom... then suddenly he’ll tell us he needs to go but once he sees the public toilet he freaks out! He will literally hold it in until we go back home. Any suggestions on getting toddler comfortable with public restroom... More
We have been potty training for about 3 weeks now and my 26m old was rocking it. He wears a pull up at night and underwear during the day. He stays dry during nap and would tell us when he needed to poop. We have to prompt him to pee. He only has pee accidents every couple of days and it's typically we are running to toliet and just don't make it or he doesn't want to stop playing.... More
My middle child has been potty training for a few weeks now, we went with the bare bottom approach. She does great at home with going to the potty but she will not wear underwear at all!!! She hates it. Tips on getting her to wear them. I’ve done different sizes and styles so now what?
I have a 3 year old who is amazing at peeing in the toilet and goes almost every single time but she will not go poop in the toilet! We have "praised" her and disciplined her and everything! We don't know what else to do!! Anyone else have these problems?
I have a 3yo boy and we've been potty training for a little now. He wears underwear most of the time and only wears pullups at night. We have gotten to the point where he will try/go to the bathroom when I take him every hour or so (if he actually goes, i reward him). He has never gone #2 in the potty (he will run away and hide and go in his pants) even with bribes of a new toy he wants. ... More
Hi all, we began potty training this week and so far so good, only a couple pee accidents and tantrums but hes getting the hang of it - we had no accidents or tantrums the last 2 days. We are using training underwear during the day, but still diapering during naps and overnight. He has not pooped in the potty; he normally only poops when he's sleeping. I am ok with a gradual transiton, c... More
Basically what it says in the title! Anyone else go through this with a preschooler? He potty trained at 3 and it was rock solid. After starting school a year ago he started to have the occasional pee accident (often when distracted by play) but very recently it’s gotten worse and he’s had a couple poop accidents out of nowhere including one at school. He’s not sick as far as we can tell and h... More
So my 2.4 year old has been ‘ready’ for potty training for a while, and took to peeing in the potty pretty much at her own initiative, and is doing great. However, pooping is a challenge: She mostly poops in her sleep, and I still have her in diapers at night and not started potty training her at night yet. Partly because she poops at night! She’s pooped in the bath once, and was pretty s... More
