Hi, my daughter is 4 in August and will not poo on the toilet just refuses completely, she will only go in a nappie but she will happily wee on the toilet. Any tips suggestions would be very grateful as this is very frustrating as she is starting school in September. Thanks

She only wears nappies for bed and asks for them when she needs a poo. She has picked her own knickers that she wears. We have tryed rewards etc nothing seems to be working

You know your own child better than anyone else...so I guess if she is in pain, that's not the solution for u :-(
Maybe U need to take her to your doctor and get them to explain to her what happens if you hold it in too long!?

Hi, ah thats brilliant. Im just not sure how long is safe to leave them as I refused to give her a nappy before for 5 days an she just cryed and cryed. She wouldn't even sit in the bath because it was hurting an I felt awful so gave in. Ive read other peoples posts an alot are saying that health professionals have said you shouldn't leave them as its bad for them an they will learn in there own time an other's are saying to leave them am they will have to do it. Its all very frustrating. X

Hi Danielle, my little boy is 3 and a half and I had the same issue with him recently. He had been weeing in the loo for months and months but refused to do poo poo in there, only in a pull-up. One day I just decided enough is enough and refused to give him a pull-up and sat him on the toiled crying and crying, but I stayed strong..it's was hard :-( but then he did it!! He finally poo'd in the toilet and I made a huge deal about it...called his nanny and pa, daddy and other family members...and he has never looked back now!! He tells random people all the time about him being a big boy and going to the toilet!! But I think it was the push he needed...hope this he's a little :-) good luck!!

Hi Danielle my daughter will be 4 in January and still poops in her panties, she doesn't seem to care. I'm very frustrated and don't know what to do. You are not alone.

I do not see anywhere on this site where it says I will be criticised, I am simply asking for peoples adcice to see if other people have had the same problem. How dare you say im a lazy mother when you no nothing about me, and how cruel are you to assume my child will get picked on. Please do not comment on my post anymore your opinion is not valid to me. You are clearly a cery rude and disrespectful person so take your opinions elsewhere. Thanks you.
