My son is pretty much potty trained but......

mikey has been doing great with potty training even though he can't talk much and we can tell when he has to go potty cuz he grabs his peepee so we know and send him on his way, but it's the pooping part, how to we get him to poop on the potty?

  • How old is he? He may just not be ready to go poo if he can't talk much. Kids will also go through a spurt of going potty in their pants a while after they learn te potty.

  • he's 4 and it's only been about 2 weeks since he has been totally out of pull ups.

  • it will just take time, offer him a toy to set there and take it away wen he gets up or offer a skittle once he sets there for a few seconds. If you see him start to strain grab him up and rush him to the potty.
