We started potty training my 3 year old over Easter weekend. He’s doing pretty well with pee, but pooping is a whole different story. The first weekend he was ok but since then he’s almost exclusively pooped in his underpants (or other places....once in the bath, once on my parents’ floor, and once on my bedspread...yeesh). We talk a lot about putting poop in the potty, he seems to understand the theory, and yet here we are.

Complicating factor is that he’s had chronic constipation his whole life. We may have acted a bit too soon in trying to wean him off it without solidifying the training - we were trying to dial the dose down a bit to “firm things up” if you know what I’m saying, and we may have gone too far.

Help! Tips on either problem welcomed!
