How can I get my 3 year old daughter to stop pooping in her pants? She has been potty trained for a long time now (6+ months) & she used to go to the potty to poop but lately she has been pooping in her pants. I am frustrated beyond belief & don't know what else to do. HELP?!?!?!

  • Has she been sick at all? Anything happen lately to her?

  • Kids will fall on and off the potty train. Maybe try a reward system. If she poops in the potty she gets a sticker and after so many stickers she gets a small prize. I always bought those party favors, my kids loved them.

  • has she gone through any major changes? new baby? new school? move? it might of been a trigger. but truthfully I think they fall off because they are so busy playing ect and they don't want to stop. I would start asking her and look at her signs again. good luck
