Re: 3.5 year old still pooping in underwear??

The good news is that this will not go on forever :smileyhappy: Honest, I wouldn't admit to having poop in my pants either!

My neighbors son pooped his pants until he was five. They thought he would never get it under control and I am happy to report that he is now 7 and poopy pants free.


Is there anything going on at home? New baby? New living situation? My best guess is to remain calm and be consistant about reminding him to poop on toilet. Maybe set times that he sits on toilet. Maybe you can get an idea of when his poop times are and work around that. Also, have him checked by a doctor to rule out any physical problems.


Remember that you are not alone. There are a lot of kids out there that go through potty training struggles before they master it.
