Just keep encouraging her. You could also try dumping the poop from her diaper into the toilet with her watching. Say: "Look! That's where poop goes!" and then have her flush the potty and say bye bye to the poop. My son thought that was funny, so I think it helped him figure it out and get past the hesitation of pooping on the potty. But it took him about 6 months after learning to pee, to do his first poop on the potty. Another 6 months after that to use the potty regularly for poops and not just wait for his naptime/bedtime diaper.



A lot of kids take longer to learn to poop on the toilet than pee. Sometimes it can take up to a year after they learn to pee.
