Another poo at nursery thread?! Sorry!

Just wondered if this is normal...

My son is 4 and goes to nursery two days a week. The first thing he does EVERY day when I collect him and bring him home (at 6) is go to the loo for a poo. Daughter is 2 and still in nappies and she is the same, will never poo during the day. Half an hour or so in the house and inevitably she will poo!

I don't make a deal of this at all, but I have asked my son once or twice and he'll say "I don't like pooing at X (nursery). There are no other issues and he goes happily to the nursery.

Is it a thing that children like to poo in their own houses?

AIBU to wonder this?

Almost everyone prefers to poo at home. "Free pooing" is a minority sport. wink

I'm 25 and only like to poo at home

Yes - it's a thing - many children and adults prefer to poo in their own familiar homes.

Doesn't necessarily mean they feel inhibited or unsafe elsewhere - it's usually more subconscious than that.

Pooing at home is much more relaxing that pooing out and about. My DS rarely poos at nursery too. I think it's fairly normal tbh.

Yes it's common and some of us never grow out of it!

I'm the same, I don't like pooing in public toilets and unless desperate will wait until I get home to do it

I prefer to poo at home too!

I didn't think children would notice but maybe they do!

Ds is the same!

My DD doesn't poo at nursery often either and generally goes once at home.

My daughter is 3, has been potty trained well over a year and has never once done a poo at nursery.
