We have been trying to potty train our 2 year old for about 6 months now (she wanted to use the potty) She will pee in the potty most of the time, but she won't poop in it. The last few months she has been taking off her poopy diapers and trying to clean herself up. NOW though she has decided to PAINT everything from her walls to her toys to herself with the poop. This only happens during her nap time or first thing in the morning. I've tried getting her to poop in the potty before naps but she holds it in, I've tried explaining but she just doesn't get it. (of course, she JUST turned 2 last week) I have tried everything I can think of, backwards diapers, backwards pajama's, putting a potty in her room, I took her toys away not as punishment but because we were having to throw so many away it was my attempt to save her toys. She is still taking off her diaper and playing in her poop!
I need some suggestions please!!!
