    Toilet training, my son forces his wee out so hard he poops?

    My son has just turned 3 and I'm trying to toilet train him. Some day's he's in the mood and other days he's completely uninterested. I don't have an issue with that, he'll train when he's ready.
    He seems to have an issue though in that when I sit him on the toilet to pee he uses the wrong muscles and squeezes like he would to poop. When he does this he ends up just doing a few drops of pee and every time he also does a tiny bit of poop.
    I know for a fact he can pee normally when he's not thinking about it. He doesn't stand around squeezing pee out when he's wearing a nappy.
    It's making it a lot harder to toilet train him because he can't be left to just take himself to the toilet as if I do that I end up with poop smeared everywhere where he doesn't realise he's done both at the same time! It also means he never does a full pee so he ends up sitting on the toilet every few minutes squeezing out a bit more.
    Is this just something he'll figure out on his own or is it worth taking him to the Dr's?

    I would take books into the bathroom and read to him while he sits on the toilet. Don't let him even have to think about using muscles and if he truly has to go, then he will go naturally. In other words, don't use so much effort.
