  • You are doing nothing wrong. Every child has good days and bad days. you just need to be constant and not but diapers back on during the day. Every child learns it differently.My first was easy and done in 3 days. My second it took 2 weeks and we are still working on pooping in the potty. Since that is something that takes longer for them to learn the feeling of that.

  • Consistency is key. HE might be one child that it takes awhile to master.
