My daughter is 3 she wears a pullup.



She uses the toilet to pee but will NOT poop in the toilet anymore. She will go into the bathroom and poop in her pullup.



Before she was doing so good with peeing & pooping in the toilet but now not so much.



Any ideas?

Honestly I bribed my son with gummy bears. Lol. I know.. bad mommy. But it worked :) he's been pooping in the potty for over a week now. And doesn't expect gummy bears anymore.

And this. As much as cleaning up poopy undies sucks it makes it go faster.

Pull ups never helped with potty training for us. My son just saw it as a cool styled diaper. He officially started to become potty trained as soon as we switched him to underwear. Expect alot of accidents at first. I remember my son threw the biggest fit screaming at us because he didnt want to poop in his underwear. "Give me my pull uppppppp!!!!!!!" But we refused so he had no other choice but to go in the toilet.

When she wears panties she does the same thing. Wet in panties vs wet in a pullup the wet pullup she HATES wet painties don't bother her.

This may sound silly but what kind of undies do you have for her? We bought my son Spiderman ones and told him it makes Spiderman really sad if he pees/poops on him.

My daughter is 4 and is just now really pooping in the potty. Before, she would do everything she could to hold it in.. most of the time leaving some poop in her underwear. She loves her underwear, so I told her that if she poops in them, I'm throwing them away. I was done cleaning underwear.. it took one time of me doing this, and she started going in the potty.

Maybe she's just not ready then :( for some reason pooping in the potty is scary for kids. Do you let her flush it? Even when he had an accident we'd dump it into the potty and let him flush it and say "it's ok buddy, we'll go to the potty sooner next time" for some reason letting him flush it made it easier.

She was fine with it before, I let her go to the potty as she pleases. I ask her if she has to go and I remind her if she has to go to the bathroom & use Mommys toilet as she calls it.



I tried a sticker chart that lasted for about 3.days.



She has ADHD btw
