Weeing fine, what do we do about poos?
11

Have started DD properly in pants today after months of warming up to it. she is brilliant with her wees but has yet to do a poo on the toilet. she pooed herself when we were out today and it was not pleasant to clear up! she does poos at random times of day, often after lunch, and doesn't go every day, but no real pattern so we can't be prepared. she has her little seat and step for the toilet and has never used a potty (don't actually know where it is, but prefer her using the toilet anyway!). what shall I do?

im in the same boat, dd2 has been in pants almost 2 weeks and is fine with wees but is now holding poos in 2 days and pooing her pants, not nice. she seems scared of pooing in the potty although has done it before.

I am also in the same boat.... Yesterday evening was a poo in the pants, then two poos in the bath (bath having been cleaned aft the first poo!). Today was poo in his nappy at nap time :(

He is fantastic at wees (on a potette on the toilet), but really fights poos. :(

Looking at this thread with interest.

Glad to hear from others! so we sent her off to nursery yesterday in pants and she didn't poo all day. Nothing this morning either, though this morning the poor thing sat on the toilet twice trying to do a poo as I have offered her chocolate buttons if she does! maybe I shouldn't have said that!
She has just gone to nursery so we'll see how it goes, after this we have three days at home so I hope she does one today at nursery otherwise it will be a whopper tomorrow, and we'll be out and about!

dd hadnt been for 2 days so i bribed her with a choc button, she said she wanted a poo but refused to sit on the potty, so i got the button and showed her then sat next to her and she finally did her poo on the potty Smile

dd is using the toilet for wees and toilets at playgroup no problem, but asks for potty for poo.

main problem seems to be dd wants to stand to poo, she has for a while gone and stood in a corner to poo, ive tried potty in corner but she moved it back, as she starts to poo she stands and then i try to sit her down and she cries, its such a shame.

familyfun that is exactly like mine! she stands in the corner to do her poos, and tends to go a bit quiet.
v discouraged today. DD came home from nursery with no less than six little bags with soiled garments inside. DP collects from nursery and seemed to gather that she did one poo on the loo but several accidents including wees as well, disaster! Her poor nursery worker! it was horrible sorting them out and washing them, yuk.
hoping for a better day tomorrow, don't want to make her anxious but am becoming a bit obsessed with it myself!

Some progress here today! All wees in the toilet and one tiny poo (no larger than a malteser!) in the toilet which she squeezed out due to promise of ice cream; doesn't seem quite right for her to be trying so hard, I feel a bit bad.
Any progress elsewhere?
