I did the schedule with my son. What that is is every morning at the same time put him on the potty whether he has to do 1 or 2 or nothing. Then every 1/2 or so after he eats put him on the potty. Before you leave to go somewhere and when you come home put him on the potty. Its pure and simple repetition. Of course, when he does either make some sort of a big deal about it. Sing a song, clap, jump up and down, children do love to please. It will take a little time but eventually he will do it on his own. Talk to him and even mention when you got to go. Say some- thing like. "Oh, mommy/daddy feels like they got to go potty" and when you come out say "I guess I was right, I did have to go potty" Im sure all sorts of conversations will start from there but this actually works. I dont believe in bribery or store rewards, simple treats from home are o.k. You can make a calendar and have him mark it when he goes and at the end of the week do his favorite activity or make his favorite meal or dessert. Good luck, its a memory that will stick with you forever.....

What should you do if your 2 year old will pee in the potty but will not poop and uses a nappy to poop?

Give the child more time to become accustomed to the potty. Try a reward system (something small like a cookie or cracker) for peeing in the potty and explain that the same works for poop in the potty, too, but not for poop in the diaper. Maybe after a while if they poop in their nappy give them a time out for not doing what they are supposed to do.

every guinea pig in a cage has a corner they mostly poop in. all you have to do is find a different type of litter that your guinea pigs love and put that in their " potty corner " of their cage and they`ll start pooping in it more often. you cant fully potty train a guinea pig because even if this works they`ll still poop outside of the corner one in a while!

my sister had the same problem with my nephew. do not give him the pull-ups. let him go around with no pants at all and when he has to go - he will eventually use the toilet. also, the toilet may be too high for him. get a little stool for him to climb up on and make a big deal about the little foot stool itself - tell him it is magic, etc. etc.
