Child Afraid to Poop on the Potty? Here's a few tips....

Here are a few tips if your child is peeing well on the potty but hesitant to poop anywhere but a diaper:

A few things you can try:

1. Provide 'privacy' - some kids just want to go poop in private! (A tent, closet, cozy corner...all can help.)

2. Make it cozy - set up an area with some stuffed animals, books, a favorite blanket.....some kids are just really afraid and need some reassurance.

3. Let him poop ON a diaper...but not in it. Tell him he can use a diaper to poop as long as he is sitting ON the diaper....which you will place ON the potty.

Keep in mind that sometimes the poop training can take a few weeks after starting on pee training.

Thank you for this. Potty training was actually quite easy for us (knock on wood), but it is the teeth brushing that is getting us. Ugh! The pictures haven't worked and we have tried a sticker incentive. Maybe I should try that again! Good luck with the PT! Potty Training Problems
