I think you need to be consistent and gently coax him the way you want it done- over the potty. I realize hes small but its harder to undo a "bad habit" than to start right.
Yah, I've been getting better at catching his poops in the potty- just hard to position him since he is so small. He gets really upset when I hold him in the classic EC position. But, he is ok with me holding him over the potty while cradling him on my left side. I guess it will get easier with time!
