My 3 year old skipped the potty and went straight to weeing on the toilet about a year ago, he wears underpants all the time, never a wee accident in 10 months, even at night......BUT, he refuses to poor on toilet, when he needs to poo he will go grab a pull ups pants and change into it and poo. He has pooed on the toilet twice, but will not go now and will hold it for days to avoid. I have tried stickers, rewards....no luck...getting desperate now...help!!!

You know this is pretty normal - a friend of mine's little girl didn't start pooing on the loo until she was 4. I think the thing might be not to make a big deal out of it, maybe just let it be - he will get it eventually! Have you tried chocolate?

Thanks! yes, chocolate has been offered but no success. I will just let it go for a while like you suggested.

I'm just interested if you've had any luck with the pooing situation my son is 4 and will be 5 in January he has been weeing for over 2 yrs but has this phobia about doing a poo on the toilet. He has to have a nappy on to do the poo I have tried every thing I can think of, even not giving a nappy but he holds on. 2 days I lasted but had to put a nappy on in the end
