I need help, advice, consolation, empathy, and a glass of wine ;)
Eamon will not fully potty train!! He can handle peeing in the potty, as long as we remind him. But after pooping in the potty three times, he refuses to do it anymore.
I have potty trained two boys already, and they were both scared to poop in the potty, but after they finally did it once, they continued doing it. Eamon will just sneak away and poop. It doesn't matter what he's wearing either - he has no problem pooping in a pull up or underwear. It's disgusting!
We have tried the candy reward approach, a pooping chart with the promise of a present at the end, taken away minutes from his nightly tv show when he poops in his underwear, but nothing seems to work!
Please, can anybody help me?? This guy needs to be trained within a month so he can go to preschool while I work. Any tips would be appreciated :)
P.S. Someone (sorry I can't remember who) asked me how we pronounce Eamon's name. It's just like Damon, only take off the D. It's an Irish name (I have a cousin with the same name) and I never thought it would be so unique, but we have found out that a LOT of people have never heard of it. He gets called EE-mon all the time, which drives me crazy, or Amen, which makes me smile :)
