Potty Training: The Poop Truth

We have been working on potty training our 25 month old son. It hasn't been going all that great. The majority of the time he will take off his pants and his diaper then proceed to pee NEXT to the potty. Yup, next to it not in it..
Anyways, one thing most people don't talk about much is the poop. You hear and read plenty of stories about the pee part of potty training though.
So here's the truth on the poop:
1) They will play in it. My sons favorite is making his trucks run over it.
2) It will get EVERYWHERE! Even after you thought you got it all you will find more a day or even a week later.
3) You will get a handful of poop from your toddler.
4) You will be scrubbing poop out of the carpet, furniture and blinds.
5) They will poop anywhere BUT the toilet...

  1. OMG, boys must be much different than girls (way beyond the anatomical). Other than the occasional accident on the bathroom floor I never had trouble with the girls playing with or spreading their poop. One thing that really helped was setting a timer - our magic number was every 30 minutes and 15 minutes after eating. Whether they had to go or not this gave them a chance to practice pulling down their pants and panties and sitting on the potty. Our oldest once she was trained even cleaned up a little poop accident she had in the bathroom before informing us she'd had a problem.

    BTW, I noticed you have giveaways on your blog - please feel free to add them to my ongoing giveaway linky at
