hi!  my 15 month old will only poop on our potty at our house.  he doesn't like the little baby bjorn potty - just a potty seat over the big toilet.  he wears diapers but will NOT poop in them or anywhere else.  twice this week, he told me he had to go and i found him a potty but he couldn't relax enough (i'm guessing) so he held it in.  i feel horrible and i'm thinking it's not healthy either.  any ideas on what i should do?  i also have a 2.5 year old, so not leaving the house is really not an option right now.  thanks in advance!

If you have a place you go, or can go regularly, how about taking him into that potty every time you go whether he needs to or not. So that he gets used to being in that bathroom, sitting on those toilets (and pack his usual seat from home!), and such.
