My 21/2 year old hasnt pooped in almost 3 days while doing the three day potty train. Any suggestions on what I should do?

She went poop three times on the first day but all in her panties just like the rest of her accidents. By the second day she was peeing half the time in the toilet but no poops. No poop on the third day and now its day four and still no poop. She has had lots of fluids and she has been eating good. Lots of fresh fruit. She doesnt seem constipated(no complaints of tummy pain or refusing to eat) . Not sure what the point is of training if she doesnt ever poop.

If she hasn't "done anything" for three days that is constipation - and it's time for the glycerine or soap-sliver suppository (minimal side-effects and it'll make her do a dooh in 10 to 20 minutes)

Sounds like she is fine with the peeing and pooping. Sometimes we do skip a day or two. But as far as her wearing panties and potty training, SHe is going to have accidents and I never heard tell of a 3 day training program. It takes more than 3 days to potty train a child.
