I have a 2.5 year old girl . I have strated to potty train her. She pees in the potty atleast for day time at home. I have yet to train her for naps and night time. Any tips ladies?
Also my concern is that she will not poop in the potty. She does not poop daily and these days will go only under the effect of Miralax.I am trying to add more fiber to her diet. She was pooping atleast alternate days before i started potty training. How can her make her to poop daily and on the potty. Please advice..

It took months for my daughter to finally poop in the potty, she cannot be wearing undies because she waits till the last possible moment. Nap time and night depends, for nap time how long does she sleep? how long can she hold it during the day? how much fluid does she drink right before nap? Ruby is 20 months and sleeps for 3 hours at nap, but she has been dry at nap time since 8 months (back when it was 2 naps and sleeping for 2 hours each). For night time, is she a sound sleeper? do you mind having to wake up every 2-4 hours to take her to the potty? does she wake herself up in order to go? I did day and night training at once, I thought it would be easier. she goes to bed at 10p, I wake her at 2 (everyday I change the time by 5 minutes) and at 5 (also change it every day). Ruby only gets 12-16 ounces of fluid/day. None close to bedtime.
