I am at my whit's end here with this boy. He goes pee on the potty just fine. Goes days without an accident. But when it comes to pooping in the potty, he just won't! He was doing it occasionally & then we all got a stomach virus right after Christmas. Since then he hasn't pooped in the potty...not even once. It use to be if I could "catch him" in time & get him on the potty, he'd go. But when I try to do that now, he puts up a huge fight. He likes to lay under our coffee table on his belly to poop. That is just the weirdest thing I've ever seen! He doesn't care if he's in underwear, a pull up or naked. None of it makes any difference to him. I try not to punish him for doing it, though I do get frustrated sometimes & I'm sure that carries in my voice & actions. I just don't know what else to do. People tell me "He'll get it eventually. Just be patient." But seriously, my 15 month old is already interested in the potty. I feel like I'll have HIM potty trained before his big brother! Any tips would be appreciated.
Oh, and we do rewards for going potty. He gets a "little candy" (like an M&M or something) for going pee & we have a dish of "big candies" (single Reese's cups, etc) for when he poops. He also has an incentive...when he puts all his poop in the potty, he gets to go to the pet store & pick out a fishie & froggy.
