DS1 is 3y4m old, and last Monday he decided he wanted to pee on the toilet. He had done it a few times before, but not since March or so, and this was like a completely new fascinating revelation to him. He literally got so excited and kept saying "Do you hear it? Do you hear it?" LOL, anyway he had a couple of pee accidents on Monday-Wednesday last week, but hasn't had one since. He also pooped on the toilet a couple of times last week, but the last several times he hasn't. He gets this look on his face, and I know he's working on it. I'll ask if he wants to go on the toilet and he will say he does, but its like he can't or won't once we get there. He will sit and chat and play for a while, then say he is done. He'll even push once or twice, but to no avail. He'll eventually just end up going in his underwear. I am thrilled he has come so far so fast, especially with #3 on the way, and I don't mind changing him, but I was wondering if anyone has any ideas of where to go from here? The one idea I had was to find a taller stool, one that he can actually rest his feet on while he is sitting, as I have heard that makes it easier for them to poop. But I have no idea where to get one - so any thoughts on that would be great as well. Thanks so much!
