Post subject: Keep going
Children have a great fear of doing a pooh in the toilet. One article I read suggested putting them on the toilet with thier nappy on when the are doinga pooh and so the get used to the ide, then to take the nappy off and put the pooh into the toilet so they can see it there.
I was lucky as my son got scared for a few days then did the 1st one in the toilet by mistake almost and never looked back since. So keep going and he will get there eventually. The weeing part seems easier! Another thing I did with my son was he sat on the loo for ages reading books etc so he got used to the idea of sitting there. Just a thought.
Hope this helps
