I have a 3 year old girl who pees on the potty all day and most of the night and will completely potty trained if she could just poop on the potty.
She has NEVER pooped on the potty, even on accadent.
I dont think she is afraid of pooping on the potty because she want to try and learn how to she loves being a big girl.
I tryed all sorts of things to try and get her to poop on the potty. I've sat her down after she eats/and wakes up. I even had set her down for an hour at a time once. A lot of the time she just goes poop in her pants after that.
I told her if she poops in the potty she can pick out a new toy.
I tryed the sticker method.
I tryed giving her m&ms.
She wears undies all day long and she knows if she poops cause she gets all messy.
I cant let her run around naked because we live with our in-laws and my FIL is uncomfortable with her being naked.
I have tryed not makeing a big deal of it and everything.
I dont know what to do! She is very hard headed.
I want to enroll her in preschool in the fall but they wont take her if she wont poop on the toliet.
When we try to poop on the toliet she will say she doesn't know how. I try to explain how to poop but then she will get frustrated.
Now lately my husband has been getting frustrated and started yelling at her when she poops in her pants and she is getting even more frustrated at pooping.
I dont know what to do now. She doesn't seem to concerned if she poops in her pants. She doesn't think it's a big deal at all.
