My son is doing ok with his wee's but still poos his pants everyday. He goes to a childminder 3 days a week. Should I expect her to be ok with this or is it likely she will want him in pull ups? I don't particularly want to use them. I have til Monday to get him sorted but can't see it happening!

I'm a CM. Loads of children are like this. She should be able to cope. Just send plenty of spares.

Thanks for replying. He was doing it before half term and she didn't seem very happy. He was wetting as well though. I am hoping the wetting will stop now so it will only be Poo. I hope she is ok with it.

I'm a CM too. This is what kids do and to be expected. My approach is to discuss potty training with parents so that the child gets a consistent message. Hope it all goes ok x

My dd1 did thos for quite a while, our CM dealt with it. She did bin more pants than me, but they were supermarket cheapies.

Surely pooing in nappies wouldnt exempt the CM from dealing with it - not a lot of difference imo.

I told her to throw the pants away too! I think the problem was when he was running to the potty and pulling pants down on the way, but not quite making it and Poo going on the floor and toys.
I'll see how he goes Monday. If only he would Poo in the potty.

I'm having this problem. DS is now 100% on wees but only 5% on poos.

Its driving me insane cos its like he isn't even trying - he seems to absent-mindedly poo in his pants then say "oops I pood my pants"! The nursery (he goes three full days a week) are very good about it and probably bin the pants too as I seem to have less and less of them! but I'm starting to think I'll have to go back to pull up pants.

Any ideas on how to get past this? he is 3 and 2 months.
