Poop training

How do you help your son learn to poop in his potty (or on the toilet) when he usually poops while he's napping? Do I skip naps for a few days so I could "catch" him poop? He will pee in his potty before nap, but I don't know how to coax him to poop. Is it even possible? Any tips??

  • Might be TMI but me and hubby would take our little one in the bathroom with us when we handling business and make him sit on the pot after a few times of this he finally showed some interest in it u may have to wake him wake him up from his nap when you think its time for him to go

  • Don't know exact age of your baby but toilet training readiness varies a lot. Goggle "toilet training readiness" and you'll see a lot of helpful info. Personally, I would not wake him. He needs his naps. It all works out in time.
