How to get my 3 year old son to boo boo in the potty?

He has got peeing down to a T. I have quit using pull ups a while ago so he wears nothing but underwear. I have tried taking the boo boo out of his underwear and flushing it down the toliet to show him. He will tell me after he has already boo booed in his underwear. I am out of ideas... any suggestions?

  • You can try having him clean the poop out of the underwear. That worked for my son. It took him about 3 weeks to master pee and poop in the potty. Wiping was a little trickier, but that's OK.

    You also have to keep an eye on him and pay attention to when he usually poops, to make sure he is on the toilet in time.

    Good luck and hang in there!
