Learning to Poop in the Potty

Learning to poop in the potty is not always easy.

Many children will go through a stage in which they will not want to poop in the potty. The most common reason is that they are scared, or they have had a painful bowel movement and are trying to avoid that pain again. I would suggest that you don't interfere with their bowel movement, but instead, when they have a BM in their pants help them to clean themself by going to the bathroom, putting their poopie into the potty, wipe them, and flush the potty. Remember to wash your hands and your child's hands. While doing all this just say "You had a poopie in your pants, but soon you will poop in the potty." Don't scold them or yell at them. They will soon decide to poop in the potty, and you and your child will not be stressed about it. Enjoy every little moment with your child, even while potty training.
