my son hasnt wore a diaper or pull up in 2 months. he is completely pee trained, but poops in his underwear every day no matter what (and suggestion on this would be great too!). i am going to a MOPS meeting tomorrow and he will be in there child care center. He stays home with me and has never been in a child care environment before. I'm afraid hes going to poo in his underwear while there, its around his normal time. Should I put him in a pull up so they don't have to worry about it in his underwear? I don't want to put anyone out more than they already will be considering I know he will scream when I leave him there. Also if you have any thoughts about how I can put him in the child care room without too big of a scene that would be great too :)Answer Question

If he is less than 2 he is too young to expect to be potty trained. Many boys don't potty train until they are 3. If he screams when you leave it sounds like he isn't ready for you to go. I know mom support groups are important but it may be better for him it you can find one that doesn't make you leave your child in another room.
If kids are pooping underwear what they can start doing is holding poop in and get impactions. These are very painful and can be huge problems getting over the medical problems and getting trained. The impactions can have to be removed by medical means. If he is upset going to child care situations just a few times of holding the poop in can start the problems. I suggest either becoming aware of poop signs so you can get him to the potty in time (elimination awareness) or going back to diapers.
