Report This| Share this:3 year old wont take a pooh in the toilet or his pottyMy daughter did this until she was almost 4.<br /><br />She was potty trained by 2, yet every-time she had to have a bowel movement, she begged for a diaper to be put on.<br /><br />I understand this is not uncommon.<br /><br />Maybe you could encourage your son to use a diaper for bowel movement........then gradually over-time have him use the potty.<br /><br />Here are some articles with really good tips.<br /><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.childrenshealthnetwork.org/CRS/CRS/pa_btrainin_hhg.htm">http://www.childrenshealthnetwork.org/CRS/CRS/pa_btrainin_hhg.htm</a> <br /><br /><a rel="nofollow" href="http://babyparenting.about.com/od/pottytraining/f/How-Can-I-Get-My-Child-To-Use-The-Potty-To-Poop.htm">http://babyparenting.about.com/od/pottytraining/f/How-Can-I-Get-My-Child-To-Use-The-Potty-To-Poop.htm</a> <br /><br />Take care!<br />-Kathleen
