  • first its totally normal kids always pee before they'll poop ( remember look who's talking with the toilet monster I think kids just might really fear this lol... anyway) try making a potty chart with staged rewards for each milestone: 1 poop a special snack, 5 poops a small toy like a hot wheels or toy train 10 poops a trip to chuckie cheese... this is what I did with DS and it worked before the month was out... good luck mama!!

  • Have you tried having him sit on the potty with a pullup/diaper still on? We did that for a few times until she was ready to take the diaper off. We also made a HUGE production of it when she finally did poop in the potty with dancing, clapping and about 15 minutes of, "I am SSOOOO proud of you, you are SUCH a BIG GIRL now!'

  • Try being busy outside of the room. What occupies him? Book, music,trucks,drawing?
