I struggled on this with my son. Then we discovered a potty book he loves..."Everyone Poops". It talks about just that; animals poop, kids poop, grownups poop, etc. I told my son he could only read the book while on the potty. So I took him to the potty seat after meals and would read the book to him. After a little while, the "power of suggestion" worked! Talking about poop while on the potty helped him make the connection. Try that book... it helped us. Good luck!
