As you may be well aware, Luca and I have been having a battle of wills about the potty for some time now.
He refuses to poop on the potty and I am getting very frustrated and tired of cleaning poopy underwear.
Luca turned 3 on June 29th. He should be ready to potty train. At least that's what I am told and am reading. I have run out of ideas.
I tried letting him run around bottom-less and that seemed to be the most successful method yet in that he really didn't want to poop on the floor. Unfortunately, he got really good at holding it until about 53 seconds after he had his pull-up on to go to bed. I don't know what is more frustrating- pooping in underwear or holding it to poop in a pull up that is less than a minute old! I'm kinda cheap and I hate that he is basically wasting a pull-up! Those things are not cheap!
So, any suggestions?????
To make matters worse, Adelynn, Dee's 2 and a half year old basically decided a few weeks ago that she was done with diapers and has been doing wonderfully using the potty. She still has the accident here and there, but is consistently using the potty both for pee and pooping. I wish she could teach Luca a thing or two!
I know it can't be forced but seriously! Something's gotta give!!!!
Any help you might have is greatly appreciated. I've exhausted all my ideas, now I need yours!
