  • Is he wearing pull ups or underwear??? Cus when I was potting training my son he went thru the same prob.. It wasnt until I took him off the pull ups that he started to go in the potty.

  • I was having the same problem with my 3 yrs old son,but I think you jst have to wait for when he feels comfortable to go in the potty....

  • It just takes time. My 2 year old learned potty first as well and pooped her pants for a few weeks. I would suggest watching them closely, having patience, and never punishing him when he has an accident. He will get it, it just takes time.

  • Was in the same boat with my son. Once we sensed that he was truly physically ready and perhaps just a little lazy we used some positive encouragement by telling him how much better he would feel if the poop was in the potty and not in his pants and closed it off with some bribery to entice him and seal the deal but it wasn't until he was ready, knew it was coming and started getting disgusted by his own poops did we get through this one.
