Poo's in the Toilet Rss

My 3 1/2 year old Daughter refuses to do Poo's in the toilet I have tried everything a reward system, stickers the potty you name it I have tried it, my only fear now is that she will start School next year and I will have a big poroblem on my hands.

As soon as I put a nappy on her she does poo's straight away with out any problem and if I dont eventually give in after a few days of putting her on and off the toilet I end up at the hospital as she is very constipated and in a loads of pain and then is too scared to go to the toilet, so I am beside my self and need any help I can get please.

Hopefully someone will read this message and will have had the same problem and can help me.

Any help would be grateful.

Hi Kelly, I too had that problem with my 3 year old. she would either wait for a nappy or go on the floor. One day i tried this and it worked like a miracle. While i was on the toilet doing my own thing she came in and asked what i was doing. I told her and said come do one on the potty and BINGO. it worked. This happened about a dozen times then she went all by herself. Give it a go and let me know how things are.
Hello, I sympathies. I am currently going through the same problem. I have a 2 and a half year old girl who will only do a poo in her pants or a nappy, she will hold in her poo untill she has something to do it in. She refuses to do one in either the tiolet or potty. The frustrating thing is she doesn't want the nappy on anymore and is fine with the wee but try as I might, I feel as it I have done everything and she still want co-operate. If you get any useful suggestions please let us know.

Unfortunately, I too am in this situation with my 2 1/2 yo daughter. I don't have any suggestions I'm sorry but it is reassuring that we are not alone. It appears everyone elses 2 1/2 yo that I know is not having this problem. The potty appears to be the answer is some form or another after talking to second and third time mums.
Thanks ladies

Just thought I would let you know that we have had a break through. My method in the end was oh well she done poo in her pants or nappy again. What I started doing was once she was finished taking her to the toilet and flipping the poo into the toilet than sitting her on it and wiping her there, like I would if she had done it in there any way. A few days ago she told me she needed to do wee than took herself off to the bathroom and come back to delightfully tell me she had done poo. I went up to investigate where she had done it and low and behold it was sitting there in the potty. I was hesterically happy and couldn't praise her enough. She hasn't done it since but its a start. Just thought that this might help some other frustrated mum, can't say it'll work for everyone but worth a go. Happy toilet training, Tiffany

My 3yo daughter is doing the exact same thing Keros, I'm afraid that I don't have a solution yet but you are not alone. I too have tried everything, she has no trouble with wees on the toilet and knows when she needs to poo because she tells me she needs to go poo in her nappy. I am at my wits end as I don't know what to do next, so if you have any breakthroughs please let me know!
It's so good to know there are so many mums out there going through the same thing. I wonder if we all worry about it too much. I guess if we think they can go wees ok on the loo, why not poos.
I have decided just yesterday after trying for so long for my son to go poos on the toilet, to let him go back to doing it in a nappy. He was holding on for days and his behaviour changed, his appetite changed, he must have been so uncomfortable. He has mastered wees ok and wears undies all the time, just a nappy to go poos in. He's managed to learn everything else in his own time over the last 3 years so I'm sure it won't be long before he decides it's ok to go poos on the loo - here's hoping
