    I made the mistake of stopping to get him to sit on there and he was still wearing undies. So I just let him relax and didn’t mention it but now I am
    In this position so I can’t stop again

    I definitely feel your pain.
    One of my twins was a HORRID toilet trainer. I feel like I have PTSD from poop in undies.She just refused to go to the toilet. She was 5 and still crapping in her pants, despite doing all the usual normal toilet training techniques from about 2 and a half. I was DESPERATE. I had older kids with no issues toilet training and her twin sister had no issues and was trained by 2 1/2 so I know it wasnt "me".

    In the end, after advice from a paediatrician, we bought Parachoc which is a parafin wax type laxative solution that is usually used to treat constipation. That way when they sit on the toilet they CANT physically "hold it in". Sounds extreme I know, but I was looking at the situation of not being able to send a FIVE year old to school due to refusing to go to the toilet and eventually not being able to hold it and pooping in undies!

    It worked and after about 2 weeks of using it, she got used to the routine of sitting there and we weaned her off the parachoc.

    I wish you well. I know how stressful it can be. For me this was 12 years ago, but just thinking about it still gives me anxiety!!!

    I’m glad it worked, I understand your stress! Yes the anxiety stays with you doesn’t it! If only there was a potty training school.
