Ya know, it took me a few times to "catch" the girls in the act before they started to telling me they had to poop. They would run off and hide somewhere and I would see the poop face and I would have to grab them and RUN to the toilet...usually made it just in time. He'll get there. You may just have to catch him for awhile. It's nice that he tends to poop at a certain time so you know when to watch him.

2008-09-17T16:20:00.000-04:00

Um, yeah....SAME problem here. thankfully though - she waits until she has a Pull-up on (nap & bedtime) to do her "duty." Ugh. Seriously - don't they want the BIG PRIZE??? (mine gets a fish/fish tank!) Isn't that enough? Apparently it's cool to poo on Cinderella and such...yuck.

2008-09-16T21:27:00.000-04:00

So glad it is going so well and I'm with Octamom, it has been so long I cannot remember exactly how it worked. I do remember that my errand day with my first did not go as well as yours!!! I felt so bad for her. Looks like you are close now and at least he knows what poopies are!



It sounds like he's well on his way! A great star...

2008-09-16T20:46:00.000-04:00

It sounds like he's well on his way! A great start, to be sure. Maybe for the pooping thing, you can tell him it's okay to need privacy, and put a potty somewhere private that he picks out?

2008-09-16T17:58:00.000-04:00

Potty training no fun. My first had the poop issue--I promised her a kitty if she would do it in the potty--that was the only that worked.
Good luck--it will happen!



I need the same advice! :)

LOL at Theresa's comment about the birthday potty chair!

My kid would tell me that when her butt was tickling her it was time to go...oooooookaaay. But having some kind of physical signal a little one can relate to might be helpful. We had potty victory dances too. THAT was always fun in public.

2008-09-16T12:29:00.000-04:00

thats awesome he's doing so great! i think as far as the pooping thing, just continue encouraging him by asking and watching to try and catch him in the act i guess...

2008-09-16T11:19:00.000-04:00

Just read Kristen's comment and I am ready to visit when ever you say it's a good time and I will be loaded with CUPCAKES! Would love to be part of it. Maybe when he poops on the potty he can call and invite Nana for a visit? Love you.

2008-09-16T09:09:00.000-04:00

I wish I had some wonderful tidbit for you, but I don't. Cavett just hated being dirty so it was really easy. I'm sure I'll be in your boat with Kendrick though.

2008-09-16T08:07:00.000-04:00

I wonder about the "pair" thing too. lol~

As for us, well maybe you don't want to ask me. Eddie has me in a potty training sort of nightmare. He is 3 years and 5 months old. We were actually doing very well before we moved. It's true what they say, any huge change in a child's life will make them backslide. He did. In a big way. We are just now starting to make progress again. The pee thing isn't an issue, as is the pooping. Some days he goes, some days not. I can't get it either. I've done the encouraging, the gifts on the fridge so he can see them, the sticker charts, and still we are struggling. And now it's time for me to start with my daughter. She turns 2 on the 18th. Ugh. Like I said, a nightmare. It's not been easy. I hope your son does much better than mine has. My only piece of advice would be repetition. Keep at it! ;)

2008-09-16T05:29:00.000-04:00

I can't help. It appears I was wrong when I potty trained my kids..according to these days.

What I did was the week before their 2nd birthday I got them all excited about 'no more diapers' when they turned 2. The day before their 2nd birthday I bought them a big present- a potty chair all wrapped up in paper and bows. But they weren't allowed to use it until their birthday. The night before their birthday the last diaper was used and we celebrated no more diapers. Then on their birthday they got to wear real big boy or girl underwear and go on their potties. They only had a few accidents, but that was it.

A lot of my child raising skills dealt with encouragement and excitement and expectation about reaching the next stage in their lives. My children are all successful adults.

These days raising children is a whole lot different than it was 20 years ago.

I have 2 step children now, 11 and 13. There are a lot more influences out there and pressure from other parents that make things so much different.

I guess the bottom line is, I would just encourage him and let him know that you know he can do this, he can poop in the potty. It appears that you are doing that already.

2008-09-15T23:56:00.000-04:00

Yea for you on all the progress for the potty training! That really is alot he has accomplished!

Cade took a lot longer to poop train than he did to pee train. The dr. said this was totally normal. He would only poop in a diaper, and not in the potty, even though he was wearing only underwear with no accidents all day long.

But he did finally decide to do it for my mom. The power and influence of grandparents I tell you. Maybe have his grandparents talk to him about it???

Worked for us! Plus, he got a cupcake instead of M & M's. To this day he thinks cupcakes are to celebrate someone's poopy! :)

2008-09-15T23:55:00.000-04:00

Yeah, why is it called a 'pair' of underwear? I have a whole bunch of these language questions I need to ask someone....

I am so wishing I could be more help...and I should be more help, given the 8 kids and all...but my first two (girls) were awful to train, but once they were trained, they trained everyone else--and I am not making that up. They took over the potty training thing and have been much better at it than I was....and then there's that whole memory lapse thing I seem to have over unpleasant chores and yucky diapers and labor and such--I guess that's how some of us end up with eight kids...short memories...

Sounds like he is doing great! He's gonna get this down fast, I'm sure!
Blessings!
