Two weeks ago I decided to start potty training. She goes for a wee really well and doesn't have many accidents. She just hates going for a poo, and will pace up and down upset holding her bum out. She sits on the potty to relieve herself in desperation and jumps straight back up again if it doesn't happen immediately. This goes on for hours sometimes. I have tried putting the computer in front of her whilst sitting on the potty, playing with my phone,reading stories, dvds about potty training you name it, but even though she is needing a poo as soon as she sits down she clams up. I have now said that if she needs a poo that I will put her nappy on but even that is the same as the potty scenario, pacing up and down. She doesn't seem to like the feeling of it coming out. Believe me when it does happen we celebrate like we have won the lottery. Can anyone suggest what I can do to make her want to go.
