Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

My two year old son will not poop on the toilet! Help!

5 answers
3 years ago
My son who just turned 2 May 11th and pottys on the toilet regularly ( has about one accident every three days) absolutely refuses to poop on the toilet. If I place him on it when I notice he is getting ready to start he holds it and won't poop for another day, day and a half. I have tried leaving him on there for up to fifteen minutes, even reading him a book trying to distract him and get him to relax and nothing. I don't know what to do and I don't want to punish him for it.

Either will my 3 year old girl.  We have been accident pee free for months.  I have given up.  I figure she will do it eventually.  Good luck!

go to amazon.com and look into these books:Everybody Poops!It Hurts When I Poophope this helps. i just started training my 20 month old, and it's going pretty well. she still hasn't pooped on the potty though....

my sister in law told me that when she was training her son, she knew he needed to poop. he refused, and instead went in his undies. she put him in the shower, and rinsed him off in ice cold water. he never did it again. i thought that was a bit extreme, but it worked!

Thanks for everyones advice but we have figured it out!! When he starts going I sit him on the potty and leave him in there for 10-15 minutes and he goes!!! I guess he was just stage fright...that or he didnt want to sit on the toilet all day because he was being stubborn lol
