My son has been potty trained and in underwear since about January. He wears underwear to bed and does not pee his pants at all. However, he has been pooping in a pull up and refuses or seems scared to go poop on the potty. We are encouraging and accepting, no pressure really...though last week we decided we'd try to push him along a bit.
Aside from discussions about going in the potty, we kept him posted that we were running out of pull ups and were not going to get anymore so he'd have to poop on the potty once they were gone. Once we ran out, he held his poop for over a day, he did sit on the potty but seemed to be either constipated or holding it in and showed discomfort. Sure enough the next day he went in his pants. The following day he held it again and instead of his normal playing was laying on the couch and almost seemed depressed!! Well I gave in...Is this a power struggle or is he truly not 'ready'
