What if my child won´t have a bowel movement on the potty?

Potty Bowel Movements

You child may not want to pass a stool in a potty or toilet, especially if he does not have good support for his feet. Rather than fight this, let him have bowel movements in a diaper so that he doesn't become constipated. Constipation can make going to the bathroom painful. If it hurts, it is likely to take even longer to use the toilet.
