As some of you know, N has been in underwear for over 6 months. He's done great keeping his underwear dry and clean with only the occasional wet accident. Unfortunately, he does not want to poop in his potty--so he holds it until naptime or bedtime and poops in the diaper he sleeps in. I've tried a lot of different things to try and motivate him, but he just says he's scared and doesn't want to do it. After stressing to him that if he needed to poop while in bed, he HAD to get up and poop in the potty--he did! It was Sunday night and we were all so excited! Of course, he had already gone to bed so it was 8PM. I'd been promising him a Hershey's Cookies and Cream bar if he pooped on the potty so we went to CVS with N in his pjs to buy a candy bar after he pooped in the potty. I know chocolate after 8PM is a great parenting thing to do, but it was well worth it. We haven't had a repeat performance yet, but I am hopeful. Finally some sort of progress. Fingers crossed for more poops in the potty soon.
