I recommend putting him into a cold shower each time he poops on himself.  Let him know that you have to clean him up and you are going to do it in a cold shower.  If you do it every single time, more than likely he'll get the picture pretty quickly.  Plus, make it understood that his choice to poop on himself results in the cold shower.  It's not punishment.  It's a consequence for his choice.

 What do you do if the child actually likes the cold shower?  I'm in the same boat as the OP with my DD.

Look at the top of this forum and look for the POOP JAIL information.

Thanks ladies for all the help.  He just started going in and doing it all on his own.  He was been doing it for a week now.  We are so happy

Does grandma keep him on a regular basis?

What did she say when you explained that he was fully trained and didn't need diapers?
