This may seem like an odd question, but I've been thinking about it a lot lately. My toddler doesn't have a problem with his poop. The smell doesn't bother him, and he doesn't mind getting it on his hands. But I sure do. At some point, we all develop this aversion to it, right? When and how does it develop?

This may be playing with words, but I don't think the aversion is developed, it's transmitted. Kids learn it from us. So the age will vary depending on your reactions, I guess.

It is said (round here anyway) that one should be careful on going too overboard with your reactions of disgust, because that can make potty training more difficult.
