My lb is pushing me to the limit. We started potty training after Easter. Started off really slow but by the middle of may we had cracked it. He seems to have taken a massive step back with number 2s though. He used to love looking at his proud poops, now he will not go on a potty/toilet. Everyday without fail he poops in his pants. I can watch him like a hawk all day and he will hold on until I'm distracted to do it. I have tried everything, reading on the potty, rewards, no pants, bubbles... He just won't. He says he's not scared, he doesn't know why. I have gone from calm and controlled about it, to on the verge of loosing my temper. I can not keep doing it. It's been almost 6 weeks now. I can only keep my calm for so long. Please someone tell me this ends and if so how to end it.

Assuming he is developmentally ready for it
Use a reward he really wants we used chocolate button for a poo and sweets ( actually vitamins) for a wee
Maybe get box of toy cars or similar if this doesn’t work then he’s not really ready

We used buttons to start with and they worked fantastically. Now he is not bothered. We have had a freddo desert in the fridge for 3 weeks, and everyday we talk about how today's the day he's going to earn his freddo! I can't understand how he had it cracked but then went back. He hasn't had a wee accident in 8 weeks.

Frustrating for you. Maybe try a different incentive, my sister put a picture of a much wanted toy on a jar and put money in every time they used the potty.

I'll be honest though I had very limited patience for potty training with my four, if they didn't show signs of being 'done' in two weeks I put them back in nappies.
