Distract her?

I'd try and put her off her nappy as long as you can, but don't force the issue. You've only done one day, so it shouldn't confuse her if you put her back in nappies - it's frustrating for you, but it's important she's emotionally ready for it. DD1 did this, and after a week more of nappies, she suddenly decided on knickers and had only a few accidents - it was very quick in the end.

DD1 also hated doing a poo on the potty/loo for a week or so and only did it in her knickers - v. annoying.

Is your potty in the loo? Pretend you need the loo and take her with you - all jolly, jolly kind of thing. She if she'll sit on the potty while you sit on the loo.

As flamingo says - distract. Move all nappies out of sight and reach. Tis a pain washing pooey pants but worth it in the end.

With DS1 we did have a few poo accidents on the floor. He never asked for his nappy to be put back on though, he just took time to realise the feeling of hmm got tummy ache, think I should go to the toilet sort of thing. Took a couple of weeks I would say, but once he was dry that was it for day and night.

Gosh, DS2 on the other hand, from the age of about 20 months was not going to wear a nappy, wanted big boys pants and he was dry during the day by himself instantly. He certainly was not going to use the potty either, it was the toilet and that was that. But boy oh boy, the night time thing took forever. He used to go into such a deep sleep he would wet the bed even though we lifted him around 11.00pm for a wee. It has only been the last 18 months or so - he is 9 now that he hasn't wet the bed.

We had introduced the potty a long time before we actually tried potty training - it was part of our bedtime routine (he sat on it, we read a story or two and he nearly always performed) then also in the morning. He actually potty trained over the weekend when we 'went for it' at 2.2. We did have our fair share of wet pants, but we didn't ever have poo-y pants!

If none of the above works, you could try 'lining' the potty with the nappy as a compromise. Then, if that works, move on to lining with loo paper (makes cleaning it easier anyway).

I think, sometimes, they find pooing sitting down quite odd because they could do it squatting or standing or kneeling when in a nappy (bit like giving birth really)
