my 23mos DD is the same way; she prefers to pee in the potty but doesn't want to poop. i figure she'll do it in her own time so i never rush her. either way, i cheer her on whenever she pees.

if your baby is telling you that she pooped in her diaper, she's halfway there and the next step is pooping in the potty. maybe you can ask her to tell you the next time she feels like pooping, to tell you and if she wants, she can try going in the potty? then when you stick her on and even if she doesn't poop, cheer her on for at least attempting it. i did that with my DD before she started peeing in the potty. she would ask or tell me that she wanted to sit on it so i put her on and praised her as if she went. so she pretended-peeing for about 2 or 3wks before she actually started going. maybe the fact that i didn't rush her and praised her anyway for trying allowed her to go??
