  • My son was particular of the feel of the potty, although he couldn't explain that, we tried the small potty but he would not poop, then we noticed the rings on his legs and hips from sitting on it so we got a small toilet seat potty and he still could never sit there to do it and started refusing to also, then he finally told us it was too hard for him and hurts his butt so I bought an extra cushioned toilet seat and that was the trick for him lol!~

  • My son had the same problem. He WOULD NOT poop in the toilet. One night at the end of dinner I asked him if there was anything that scared him about going potty. After several shy/nervous nods and more questions I learned that we had monsters in the toilet that were trying to get him and/or his poop. I set up a little step and showed him how he could squat on the seat to poop. After that he never pooped in his pants again.
