Child Afraid to Poop on the Potty? Here’s a few tips….

Here are a few tips if your child is peeing well on the potty but hesitant to poop anywhere but a diaper:

A few things you can try:

1. Provide 'privacy' - some kids just want to go poop in private! (A tent, closet, cozy corner...all can help.)

2. Make it cozy - set up an area with some stuffed animals, books, a favorite blanket.....some kids are just really afraid and need some reassurance.

3. Let him poop ON a diaper...but not in it. Tell him he can use a diaper to poop as long as he is sitting ON the diaper....which you will place ON the potty.

Keep in mind that sometimes the poop training can take a few weeks after starting on pee training.
