Well my daughter is 3 and she just won't pee on the potty anymore. When she was 2 she did great with both for about a month and a half. But now I have to beg her or say she only gets water instead of juice is she doesn't try the peeing on the potty first. I tried doing the very hour thing bringing her to her potty but she gets angry and just runs and hits. I tried candy and stickers for when she peed or even tried. some days she is great and I praise her for it but most time she just poops on the potty. I also bought some cloth training pants but kinda gave up when it was alot to clean up either way so i am just stuck and need help b/c I really wanna keep using the cloth training pants b/c disposable are just expensive and with cloth she realizes when she is wet and wants change and seemed to go on the potty more often.

Please help I don't know what else to do....

Thanks Yolanda

Thanks, Yolanda! I've tried asking him, but he won't answer. I've had her explain to him that she used to be scared too, but that hasn't worked either. I guess he'll have to decide to go poop in his own time. In the meantime, I've given him some Castor oil, which interesting enough he likes!

Thanks for the reply! (((Hugs back at ya)))

Have you asked your son why he is afraid. Maybe letting him hold something that comforts and make him feel safe while he is on the potty. Ask him why he is afraid it may open up some kind of answer for you on helping get past his fear. Maybe try to get his older sister to explain that she used to be scared and she is not scared anymore maybe try to let her help him build his confidence or something. Since she understands it in some better way why he is scared like she used to be.



I hope that helps in some way and good luck. ((HUGS))

I wish I could help! I have a nearly 4 year old, who has the pee pee down pat, but he's refusing to go poo in the potty! I don't know what to for him. He will go days without pooping. He doesn't like to have a pull-up on either! He said he's scared of going poo, but I keep telling him that there's nothing to be scared about. His older sister, 6, had the same problem & we had to put her on Myralax in order to make her release her poo. It's frustrating to see him running around like a little chicken w/his head cut off, because he has to poo, but refuses to push it out when he's on the potty. I've even told him we won't get mad at him if he poos in his big boy underwear...we just need him to poo.

I put the panties on her and after a few days of her peeing in her cloth panties she wonted to use the potty she did not like having a soggy bum, and when she used the potty she got a to pick sicker @ the end of the week if she got say 7 stickers she got a big girl treat like an extra story @ bed time or she got a little more frozen yogurt After dinner BUT she got to pick 1 thing that she would like to do for doing such a big girl thing like using the potty every day.. but it dose not work for pooping in the potty I hope this helps best of luck,

I had a peeing problem with my daughter also, and I've put the Potty on the toilet and I sat down on it and pee! After I dump it in the toilet and flushed it, next I ran to the kitchen to put a sticker on my hand and I was always showing off my hand with the sticker on and I was saying "hey Shanika, look at my sticker, mommy hands look awesome!" and with 3 days she started to pee and poo in the potty.
If you try it, I hope it works real good like me with my little Shanika!
Best of luck!

I personally would rather throw 1 pull up away in a day then 3-4 a day. It is alot of money to spend. I understand pooping is not fun to clean up. But whether I am lucky or not I just would really like advice on how to get her peeing on the potty. At least she is trying my daughter won't even try she gets all angry and just yells no and runs most of the time. So well if you have any advice on how you were able to get your daughter to pee that is what I would like to know.

Well Hello,



Thanks for the advice. Personally I am not sure why I can get her to poo. I think she just never liked having a poopy diaper. She seems to realize it is less time consuming to poo she only needs to do it 2-3 times a day so she realizes thats something she can make time for. peeing she has to do a lot so she figures peeing in her pull ups is easier from what I have noticed. It's not stinky so she feels that peeing is not a big deal and I think it is harder to try to hold in then poo. Thats something I think she can't control to well I guess especially when she is really into playing she just ignore trying to run to the pooty int time to go I guess idk know what to do. I have tried saying when she does pee in her pull ups - "Where do you go pee?" she says "On the potty." So then I will go show her again where it is at and say, "yes where you poo is where you should pee too." That seems to help every now and again and sometimes she will sit down afterwards and try again even though she peed it all out but I will still praise her for it. So maybe you can reverse that saying - "Where you pee is where you should poo too."
