  • I think it's a phase they all go through. My 3 1/2 year old daughter will only poop on the's a fight to get her to pee on the potty. She was (I thought) completely trained 3 months ago because she went all the time on the potty but the last 2 months we've had the issue. I'm DESPERATE to get her off the pullups but everyone I've spoken to has said the same's a phase they'll grow out of....I sure hope it's soon!

  • My bf and his ex just got over this with their son, CANDY BARS! LOL Bribing works and it's easy to control, with my oldest nephew he got a dollar, his brother didn't need bribing. With my daughter she loves applause so with her just starting real potty training we flush the poop and cheer yeah, poop goes in the potty!
