Post subject: Wont poo on potty/toilet
Noah's been dry during the day for a while now - he cracked it within a few days of us starting potty training. He's even done one poo on there, but that was weeks and weeks ago and he refuses to do them now. He always comes and asks me for a nappy on when he needs a poo, and then goes off to do it straight away.
What can I do to encourage him to use the potty for poos? We have a reward chart, which he no longer gets stars for if he does wees - only for poos - but he doesn't seem interested in earning stars any more.
It's so frustrating!!

i had this with my daughter, dry in 2 weeks, poos took 4 months!
she wouldnt even tell me when she needed a poo, she would just hide and do it in her pants.
in the end one day she just went to the potty sat down and did a poo, and i made such a big fuss and gave her some chocolate, and for ages she had a chocolate every time she did a poo on the potty.
