My son is 27 months old and is doing great with the first stage of potty training. He loves going pee in his potty. It doesn't matter where the potty is, he'll hold it until he finds it, go pee, then come tell us that he did so we give him a sticker. :] One problem is it's been a week and he seems to be too scared to poop in his potty. There's been a few times where it was very obvious that he had to go, but he waited until we put him in his diaper at nap time to go. His most common time to go is before his nap. Very rarely he'll go during or afterwards. When he does go later on it's because we're out of his veggie juice that works so well with keeping everything regular haha.
Anyway, I was wondering a few things:
*Are there any tricks to getting him to poop in his potty?
*Also, once we have that down we'd like to get him to start holding it during naps and for running errands too, but he thinks of his boxers as a diaper at this point. If his boxers are on, he'll just pee in them. He knows how to pull them up and down, so that's not the problem. I'm not too sure what to do besides showing him his potty and reminding him to use it to avoid accidents in his boxers.
*Once we can get him to go poop in his potty, and hold it long enough to pull his boxers down I'm hoping we can figure out how to get him to hold it while sleeping. I was thinking that maybe giving him his last drink a couple hours before and taking it away an hour before it's time to lay down will help, but that's just a guess. Any suggestions??
