Sounds like you're doing the right things.

At this age it's just to get them familiar with it. I figure if Levi knows he can poop in his diaper, or the potty, that will help. If he doesn't go, I just say "no pee" or "no poop." If he actually tries but nothing comes out, I say something like "good try." When he does pee or poop I show him it and let him watch me dump it into the big potty.

We also taught Levi the sign language for poop. That's really how we started it. He made the connection right away (to my surprise). Within 3 days he was doing the sign before he pooped. He loves it, since he absolutely hates laying on his back for diaper changes.

I'm not expecting any real success until the summer when we will try to PT him.
