I am having a hard time potty training my three year old regarding poop! He is pretty good with peeing- he could be in underwear all day and tell me when he needs to pee in the potty and make it there in time and all (though his aim is imperfect!). But he almost never poops in the potty still! He will either be in a diaper or ask for a diaper. sometimes occasionally he will try to sit on the toilet or potty and poop but usually not even that.
Some of his grandparents are starting to give us crap about it- subtly- like, he really should be out of diapers at this point!
I never thought my three year old would still be pooping in diapers. He is just one month into being three. I am no sure what more to do. We have read a million potty books, offered rewards, sat patiently while he occasionally tries- I guess the only thing I could do is if he asks for a diaper to poop I could refuse and then he would poop on the floor but I feel that that is both harsh and messy.
How do I make the transition for him to poop in the potty? He is so smart and understands so much about everything and has great communication sills and all that- but he wont poop in the potty.
Is his age appropriate or are we getting pretty late in the game here?
I am at a loss for what to do. Usually I just am patient with it until I ge a comment here and there then I start to doubt my approach.
