Potty Training HELL Continues....... Cameron is almost 4 and we are still in potty training hell. It has gotten much better. He wears underwear everyday and goes pee all by himself in the toilet and hasn't had an accident in awhile but it's the other one we are having trouble with....going #2. He does go in the toilet sometimes but most of the time he ends up going in his pants. And when he does it's a huge ordeal and sometimes takes him a couple days. Sometimes it hurts him so bad he is yelling and screaming and won't even try to sit on the toilet. I feel so bad for him, it's so sad. He holds it because it hurts but then when he eventually does go it hurts him even more. Then I think the times that it doesn't hurt he is just scared to go. I don't know what to do anymore. It's so frustrating.

I thought he was going to be so easy at potty training. When he was 2 he started showing interest and peeing in the toilet. I had no idea it was going to be like this. Thanks goodness we finally almost mastered the peeing;) I guess after we master #2 we move onto the night time training. He still wears a pull-up to bed. That should a ton of fun also....oh joy.

Does anyone have any helpful tips on this matter?


  1. Have you asked the doctor why it could be so painful, maybe he needs something to soften it up? i know Hayley's Dr has said more fruit juice to soften it up if it gets too hard. btw, only moms can talk about poop so openly. lol. i feel for you, i am looking forward to not using diapers in the future but I am NOT looking forward to potty training a boy:(

  2. i'm so sorry to hear, jessica. :( it's so sad that it's hurting him. when my brother was little he used to do the same thing. my mom called the dr and i remember her giving him certain juices and foods to help with it. he was so scared to (i'm sure he'd love to know i'm writing about his pooping incidents from over 20 yrs ago lol)
    i'm sure it is so frustrating for you and your son!
    i hope that it gets better for the both of you!!
    wishing you a wonderful weekend <3

  3. We are still not fully there and she is 3:( she will wait till I put a diaper on to poop. I get frustrated but I try to tell myself, one day she will be all trained. Good luck mama

  4. Poor little guy! I would look into stool softeners (from foods of course). As difficult this is for you, I'm sure he's miserable too. You will get past this rough spot soon, I'm sure of it.


Thank you so much commenting, I love to hear from you's always appreciated;)
