We first introuduced our son to the potty when he was 12 months old, it basically was just explaining to him what we did when we had to go and then we bought him his own potty and let him " pretend" with it.
He is now 2 yrs old, he knows what to do and will go pee whenever he needs to, but I can't get him to go poop on it, he says ewww everytime we talk about it, but he hates to having it in his diaper.
I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions,
Learning to poop in the potty typically takes longer than peeing. Two is still quite young for getting the hang of potty training. I'm suprised/impressed that he seems to be doing so well at such a young age. I would suggest just giving it some time. Just keep encouraging him. Remind him whenever you change his diaper that he needs to poop in the potty, not in his diaper. Whatever you do, DON'T punish him for accidents or refusing to use the potty. The last thing you want to do is create negativity or fear of using the potty. Eventually, he will decide that it really is much better to poop in the potty. Like I said, he's still young, so give him some time.
Whatever you do, don't push it.Both of my boys seemed to do everything early so I assumed(silly me) that they would potty train early too.I know, that was stupid.well, it seemed no matter what we did or how we did it neither one really responded in the way we wanted.I finally ended up just kind of giving up on both of them(they were four years apart and for some reason, both were very hard to potty train)well, after I stopped pushing it, and just kind of left it up to them to decide when.Things went rather smoothly after that.I also was rather amazed that once they decided that they were just going to use the potty, my oldest never ever wet the bed and my youngest only had like two accidents.I found this really interesting because of friends who would gloat to me about just how their little darlings were potty trained at like age two and even younger,but they were still wetting the bed,and some ,quite often.Now to me, that is not potty trained.my sons pediatrician recommended to just let them know where everything was and what they needed to do with it,and mention to them from time to time if they had to use the potty,but to not push it on them and eventually they would do it on their own timetable,not one that we decided .and lo and behold, it worked.They were potty trained a little later than most, but once they made up their minds, it was done.just don't force it and eventually they will come around.it really is not anything to get really worked up about,honestly.There are much more serious things to have to worry about you know?Keep things as relaxed as possible.I know that i still had the tendency to go overboard at times as I just wanted it to be done, but found that both of my sons were much more receptive to doing it when I didn't get all bent out of shape over it.Good luck, marcia
When I was potty training my 4 children, I did not put them in diapers or pullups. I put them in underwear with plastic pants. I believe this helped them to learn faster because wet undies are much more uncomfortable than a diaper, which is absorbant. Having a BM in undies isn't pleasant either. They all learned fast - the longest it took was 4 months for my slowest child. BTY, I began at age 2.
