I have been leaving putting a nappy on until just before I put him in bed and that's when he does it!! OR he does it in his sleep - like he's held onto it all day for the nappy...we try putting him on the toilet before we put nappy on for bed and he insists he doesn't need a poo...
Unfortunately no nappy at bed isn't an option for us yet, his nappies a full with wee when he wakes, so just don't think he's ready :-(

Following for ideas. Mind you DS is hit and miss on the pees as well still. He wakes up dry every morning but refuses to go to the toilet straight away. He will go during the day randomly - if he's involved in something though forget it.

My daughter was EXACTLY the same. She would scream for a nappy to do it in. Wee's were no problem. I let her use the last of the nappies and kept reminding her that after they were used I wasn't buying anymore. Then she saw a toy she really wanted from the shop so we started a sticker chart. When she did 5 poos in the toilet she got the toy. To get her to go the first time was kind of being In The right place at the right time! I could see she was starting to go and I convinced her to sit on the toilet just for a minute and it seemed to work. Now she loves getting her 'flowers' for doing a poo.

We had the same problem, one day we ran out of nappies so I couldn't put one on my kid, I showed him there were no nappies and told him he'd have to use the toilet. Never had a problem after that.

Bribery worked for us.
I kept a packet of smarties in a high cupboard and DS2 got rewarded with two smarties every time he used the toilet.
Might not work for everyone but within a couple of weeks he fully trained for day and night.

So thanks to this thread I bought m&ms last night (did you know they are doing limited edition banana flavour?) and told 2y8m DS this morning he will get a chocolate if he poos on the potty. He did 1 poo in his nap nappy but started to poo this afternoon, looked at me and said "poo! Hurry hurry!". Got him to the potty and after about 5 min he did a poo in the potty! Woohoo! He's been 9/10 wee trained since we started about 6 weeks ago. I had to shut the door and he took some junk mail along (just like dad always taking something to read on the toilet! ). So thanks for all the bribery tips!!!

Unfortunately bribery does not work here. Dd1 already gets everything that she wants *sigh*
Dd1 said she will poo on the toilet when she goes to school.

I'm bumping up this thread as I have a similar problem. DD was doing really well doing poos and wees on the toilet up until a couple of weeks ago. She wasn't in undies yet, just training pants, but she was going really well. Then we started to talk about how when she could go to the toilet by herself she could start 'school' (daycare) which she was really excited about and she told everyone who would listen 'I can go to school soon because I can go to the toilet.
Anyway I don't know what's changed but it's like one day she just decided she didn't want to go to school so now she won't go to the toilet. I've had to put her back in nappy pants because she's doing poos and wees in them and flat out refuses to go to the toilet. When I ask why she won't go to the toilet she says she doesn't want to go to the toilet because she doesn't want to go to 'school'. I told her that's fine and she doesn't have to go to to school, but she does have to remember to go to the toilet. I've tried bribing with smarties and stickers, she just will not budge. Even when I can see she's about to do a poo and say quick lets go to the toilet she will cry and refuse so I just leave it because I don't want to create a negative connection. DH is really getting the sh*ts though and he yells when he's home and refuses to change her nappy.
Does anyone have any advice? She turned 3 in January and I'm due with our second in a month. I was really hoping she'd be toilet trained by the time the baby comes along but now that looks impossible. It's so frustrating.

We had the same problem with our 3yr old (he is now 4.5).
This sounds bad, but we bribed him with ice cream. find your child's currency and bribe them.
that's my advice and it won't suit everyone.
Eventually he got used to going on the toilet and the big production we made of how excited and proud we were of him became more of an incentive than the ice cream. We did warn him in advance that he won't always get ice cream, but it took about 2-3 weeks and the poo on the toilet issue was sorted
