Potty Training Problems

Lately I have been getting questions from parents regarding pooping in the potty. It seems their child will go pee pee but not pooping. This is quite common in children. There can be many factors though.

One, a child has been in a diaper since birth. When they poop it stays next to their skin. Transitioning from the diaper to using the potty can be an overwhelming experience. The potty can be scary too. Also, some children experience painful or traumatic bowel movement incidents. This can leave a lasting impression on them. I dealt with the doesn't want to poop in the potty problem mostly with my middle child. 

What I did was let my son take his favorite toy with him to the potty which at that time was Blue from Blue's Clues. Within a few days I was able to get better cooperation with him. 

I also recommend utilizing a consistent schedule taking him or her to the potty as often as you can such as every hour. Be creative in ways to keep your child occupied and entertained because children during the toddler and preschool years definitely do not want to sit and wait.
