My oldest daughter is almost 2 and half years old and has been peeing on the potty for some time now. I never did get her to poop on the potty and she isn't regular as to when she needs to go - even as an infant she wasn't. Now I have a 3 month old daughter and my oldest has been showing signs of being jelouse and this has nearly brought the potty training to a halt. I try to give her, her own special time everyday where just her and I have time together but this hasn't helped at all. I've tried to give her some kind of motivation by telling her what a good job she's doing and rewarding her when she does use the potty. As for pooping however, I keep telling her if she goes poop then she get's to do the things she really enjoy's (like going for a ride on the John Deer Gator or going to see the cows and horses, and until she does she's not allowed to do these things because only big kids who go on the potty are allowed). And she know's when she's gone because she will come and tell me, then proceed to her bedroom where she'll get herself a new pull-up and climb up on the change table and wait for me. I am truly at a loss! I just don't know how to get her to poop in the potty. I've even tried a timer that was set to go off every hour but she'll still poop her pants after sitting on the potty.
