She has no trouble with urinating but just continuously messes her pants. We have tried rewards, having her go at certain times and putting her potty any different areas of the house. Any one have any ideas ?

My son had the same problem and I just didnt push him to poop or pee, he would tell us that he needed to poop but would always wait till we put a diaper on him to poop. So I just let him do what he needed to do and gave him time and I didnt get on him for not pooping in the potty. But when I could I would "dump" the solid poop out of his diaper and put it in his potty and tell him that is where it goes and he learned and all the sudden he was pooping in his potty and is now potty trained during the day and he doesnt turn 2 till Oct. 22nd.

get pear juice in the bottle or sippy cup and that will clear her out in no time.

Try giving her pure molasses, 1 tblsp a day. It has helped my son. He gets constipated alot and I have to give him more fiber foods. Like Raisin Bran instead of Fruit Loops. If she doesnt like it add some sugar and buy wheat bread for sandwiches instead of white. I hope this helps. God Bless!

My oldest daughter started going on the potty at 2 of couse just to urinate. It was almost 6mos before we could figure out the problem she was shy. She always went and hid in the closet at that time so we just shut the door while she was going and voila!! No more pull ups. Hope this helps.

Thank you so much for everybody's helpful and encouraging words. I have tried videos and some books. We are going to try the Everyone Poops book, heard its quite informative. Will defiatly look into the lactose intolerance, because my husband is lactose intolerant. I never thought of that. Thank you.

Quoting Carrie:

Daughter is having horrible trouble with going number two.

My oldest son is now ten, and he had problems starting around four a bit older then you little one but I do have a couple tips I learned from him and now watch with my younger children. Once he started school he began having accidents though he never had problems in daycare. I began holding it until he was somewhere comfortable (alone) to do his business. Since he held it he lost all control because his colon stretched. Constipation and diarreia follow for many years, many different doctor stradgies and so on. So I think for the formost important thing to do is make her feel comfortable and knowing that it is okay to poop with you around and making the bathroom stinky. hope this is helpful and good luck

Give her some time.Potty training can very stressful for the parent and the child. My son was 2 at the time we wanted him to start the potty training. He was terrified of the though of being off his diaper.We gave up the potty training process for a couple of months and allowed him to let us know if he was ready for PT .We ( hubby and I) would ask him the same question everyday, in a cheerful way " Are you ready for PT today sweetheart?" for 6 months we heard the same answer "NO" until at close to 2 years and 7 months He answered in a cheerful way " Yes mommy" we had already bought one of those adjustable potty training seat that fit the regular toilet sit and from that day on...!:)

My little boy has problems with that also. His doctor told me to limit his dairy because it makes somes kids get "backed up" and then it is hard for them to go. He had a lot of "skid marks" in his underwear and sometimes full poops. I found that milk does it the worst. Hope this helps.
