My son Matthew has been pottying. Cause we were out of pull ups. Well he goes during the ok he has peed in his undies and he poops in them. I am trying to catch him so he can pooped on the toliet.

My hubby thinks I'm pushing him cause sometimes Matthew will say no when you ask him to go.

But I don't think I am cause when he wore his pull ups when I would change him he would ooo (meaning he didn't like his poop on his butt)

Do you have a question? My oldest was perfectly content using a diaper, but I got tired of wiping man sized poop off his butt so they were no longer an option. I didn't use pull-ups with him either. I got training pants from Gerber and a kitchen timer that I set for every 30 minutes. He drank lots of water and I just went for it. By 2 1/2yo he was totally potty trained (putting the seat up when he peed, putting it back down, wiping his own butt when he pooped, and washing his hands). I'm getting tired of his younger brother's poopy diapers too so looks like his time is coming...

 Pull-ups are pretty much just like diapers. I would suggest going straight to undies if you feel he's completely ready to be trained.

I had my daughter fully (pee, poop, nightime, everything) potty-trained in 5 days. We didn't do pull-ups, we went straight to panties. Took her potty regularly, I was calm about accidents, I encouraged her when she did use the potty, etc. Yes, she had 2 or 3 days of accidents, but she finally got the hang of it very quickly. She was 3 years 2 months at the time.

Yep, they learn that they can just use them as they would a diaper.

My middle guy just finished training and he would say no alot. We made him go anyway. It was the only way to show him that he did have to go and that it was important not to hold it in until he peed or pooped his pants.
