I have just started potty training my almost three-year-old boy as he is going to pre-school in Sept and has to be toilet trained before then. The first few days he only did poos in his nappy when I put them on for sleeps but now he will do a poo in the potty at home as well.
The problem is he hasn't done a poo at nursery yet, and actually the first few days back at nursery after I started the potty, he refused to go anywhere near it and cried every time, even though he was going at home.
We have now tried taking his own potty to the nursery, and his favourite book so that he can read it while he is there - hope this encourages him to go at nursery.
I have tried reading a few different books eg Parenting for Dummies has a good section on potty training, plus Gina Ford's book Potty Training in a Week has lots of stories from other mums (though it wasn't successful in a week for us!!). I think there are lots of books on toilet training boys out there too, but we are just plodding along with what we're doing.
There's an article on here too: http://www.madeformums.com/potty-training/potty-training-boys/9711.html
Sorry for the essay, and let me know how you get on!
