comment What to do when my 3-year-old holds poop in and won't go in diaper or on potty?
Not as far as I can tell. We try to encourage him (telling him "good job," etc.), so maybe he interprets that as pressure? But we did the exact same with peeing on the potty and he has no trouble with that at all. Furthermore, if we can tell that he needs to poop and we ignore it (rather than tell him "time to use the potty," etc.), he still holds it in...

No, but I know it isn't fear of the potty itself since he started holding it before we even started with the potty training (plus, he pees on the potty and likes it). I don't know if he's scared so much as it's just uncomfortable, so he holds it to avoid the discomfort (which just makes it worse when it does finally come out).
