I have a 3 year old who still uses diapers and her sister whom is older has been potty trained since she was 3. any advice on how to help stop my 3 yr old from pooping in her diaper? Any ideas on why she is still using the diapers and she is not going to the toilet no matter how i encourage bathroom use.

I read that it's hard to communicate with her still and that she might not get the gist of using the toilet yet. I personally think when they're ready they'll show interest in the toilet. Some children take longer than others and that's ok! She will learn if you continue showing her how to use the potty and maybe sitting her on the toilet after she does her duty. Show her that poo and pee go in the potty. Me and my son flush the toilet together and he waves bye to it 😂 it's too darn cute.

Well mine did the same. so my husband and I done away with diapers all together. the night we decided this she got to pick out a ten pack of her own "big girl" undies. (she picked frozen). I made it very clear to her that if she had an accident mommy would supervise as she cleaned up the mess herself. she giggeled the first time she had to hand- wash her own undies and sheets of pee pee. But poo poo was a hard no for her. it only took one time of washing poo out of her own undies that she understood that this was a big no no. and we never looked back since.

I would love the answer too because i have two year old daughter in she knows what potty is n when she does pee or the number 2 she tell me and at times she go by her self but she want do it 90% of time on her own. Why is that but my oldest who is 8 i had no trouble with her two weeks in she was good. I need advice as well because i need her start to do this own her own. Dipers are expensive!!!!!

On the back of her diaper cut a hole. So when she poops her diaper does not hold it. You can tell her when you poop you make the characters on your diaper mad.
