My daughter has been pee pee potty trained since 21 mos, and she hasn't had any accidents or problems since. However, she refused to poo poo on the potty at all. She will scream, cry, throw herself on the floor, and ask, "Can I please have a diaper?" If I refuse the diaper she will hold it for 3 days until she is constipated and crying that her tummy hurts. The pediatrician has recommended just giving in and putting a diaper on her when she needs to poo poo (just once a day right before bed time). I feel pushing the issue just causes tension between us, and I'm concerned that pushing too hard will cause her even more anxiety about using the potty.
I have tried candy, stickers, toys, and every other incentive I can think of and it just isn't working, she is very strong willed. Has anyone else had this kind of problem? Any advice?
