Does he take the nappy off to have a poo or is the nappy coming off anyway and he has a poo at some point?

I think its likely he's becoming aware of the nappy being full of wee and so takes it off. It could be time to start introducing the idea of the potty if he's not keen on doing it in the nappy.

In the meantime, you could try pull-ups if you haven't already, also putting vest and sleepsuit on backwards to make it harder to reach in.

Or ducktape grin

I should add that the reason I think you might want to introduce the potty now is that otherwise you'll go through he'll trying to get him to poo in his nappy instead of te floor only to later on try to wean him out of the nappy!! Babies are often ready earlier than we think!!

The way I Introduced the potty was to put babe on potty in front of me on loo. Then made numerous trips all day to loo and said 'DS on his potty. Mummy on her potty. Pee pee and poo poo!'.
