18 MO Grabs His self when dirty, Where do I start?

ODS is 9 and when he was ready to potty train it was so easy that I'm beyond scared now with YDS. ODS we just ran out of diapers and instead of buying more he picked out his own underwear. He refused to poop in them, he would have wet accidents but that was every now and then.

YDS is 18 mons old and he grabs his diaper and gets visibly upset when he has pooped his pants. I haven't picked up on any cues before the deed is done, but he tells us as soon as he is done. I know it's time to start but I honestly have no idea what to do this early. ODS was 2 before I started sitting him on the potty and showing him what to do. Any help as to where to look? I'm not much of a book reader, but websites are good!!!

TIA

The next time your YDS poops his diaper, give him the words to describe what's wrong, "Uh-oh, you pooped your pants. That feels uncomfortable, doesn't it? Next time, before it happens, you can tell mommy, and then you can sit on the potty and put the poop in there, so it won't touch you and feel yucky." I might go so far as to put the poop in the diaper into the potty (or directly into the toilet if you're just going to use a kid-sized toilet seat) and show him that that's where it should go instead of the diaper, then let him flush it down. Remind him again that he should tell you before he starts pooping so that you can go to the potty fast to put it there instead of in the diaper.

If he doesn't seem to get it, I'd consider getting a baby-doll that pees/poops into a potty to demonstrate with, just to make sure that he understands what you're trying to communicate.

I meant to add, he doesn't talk very much. I think that is a big difference from ODS when he was at this age. When I talk to him all he says back is "huh". I know he understands because he will do what I ask like get your cup, he'll pick up his cup.
