The deep dark abyss of potty training

We started potty training 6 weeks ago.  Because of his personality, I knew he would be my hardest one to potty training.  He’s proving me right.

After 6 weeks, he has pooped in the potty 3 times.  I’ll let you do the math on how many times he has NOT pooped in the potty.  Pee isn’t a problem.  Serious problem with the pooping.


I am open to any and all tips you brilliant parents have on how we fix this situation.  I’m not going back to diapers.  We’re too far in.  If you have a suggestion, leave it in the comments and I’ll love you forever.  For the record, he is not motivated by treats or toys.  I’ve tried.  And he does not poop at the same time every day.  Way more info than anyone wants.

And if you don’t have great suggestions and you just want to lament with me in the comments, that’s great too.  It’s a lonely dark world in potty training hell.

  1. Awwwww!! I came to ur blog after being led here for the PL post..loved it..I am loving the app too!! Then I was looking around elsewhere and saw this post with no comments!! You need support!! I am here for you…lol…it will happen…I promise! I am a mom of 3 …all grown..and about to be a Gmom for the first time!! I have one boy but it was my 2nd girl that was the hardest in this regard. She got the peepee part easily, but the poopie part took some time. She caught on in her own time ….I think the less attn you draw to it, the quicker it will happen. Hang in there and enjoy your kiddoes…it goes all too quickly!!

    1. Susan,
      You are my new best friend. Thanks for the love! I know he’ll figure it out eventually. But in the mean time. Ugh. I’m definitely doing my best to enjoy them though. I already “miss” them and they aren’t even grown up. ha! It’s going WAY too fast.
