So I was always under the impression poos were harder to potty train for than pees. Either Alex is backwards or I was misinformed. She's been telling me after she poops lately "I pooooooooop" lol. She can be soaking wet and won't say anything and never has warned me before anything. And all of a sudden today while taking a bath she whines to get out and says "I poop", there's nothing in the tub so I get her out and set her on the potty, it takes her a couple minutes where she actually mostly sat still on the potty (she never sits still when I put her on it normally) but she pooped in her potty and told me "I poop". Then wanted back in the tub lol.

I though we weren't ready to train yet but should I buy some undies and give it a try? I'm completely clueless about this potty training stuff.

Thanks to Bokkechick for my siggy.

Yay! That's exciting!

I'm not sure if poop is harder or not. I think some kids aren't as comfortable pooping on the potty for whatever reason. I've only potty trained one kid so far and she was fine with both. Dom does both in the potty and doesn't seem to have issues with poop more than pee. I know some of my friends had kids that would run away and hide it so maybe it's more to do with them thinking it's gross or embarrassing rather than actually harder to train them for?

You could totally go ahead and get some underwear, it's worth a try

Thank you Vicki for my new siggy!

Each kid is different. I've had times were one kid will only poop on the potty and other times, only pee on it. Go with the flow and try it. If it doesn't happen, at least she will save you the trouble of changing poopy diapers by pooping on the potty.

I'd say go for it and give it a try. Just maybe go at her own pace. If you think she may need to pee then try and put her on the potty and distract her by a favorite book or just talking to her.... and see if she'll maybe go without realizing it and then of course, make a big deal about her peeing on the potty.

I haven't trained Kynslee yet so don't have experience with my own child but I did train the girl I baby sit for and when working at day care have helped trained with that.

That's exciting, April. I think some kids are just better about it than others. My James was my easiest child to train. He hated being wet or dirty so he was trained on before his 2nd birthday.
