So my dd is 3. We have been working really hard with her to potty train her. She has finally gotten to the point that she pees in the potty all day for the most part. She will still have an accident sometimes though. But as far as pooing she refuses. She will sit on the potty but not poo. She will go in her panties or pull up and not say anything, she doesnt stop playing and hide or anything when she is, thats the wierd part if that was the case i could run her to the potty but she just continues to play before during and after she does. I have tried everythign. I have followed her around and played with her constantly all day and dont notice something that shows she is doing it. I have tried bribing her, ive sat next to her and read her book after book. I dont know what else to try. Sometimes shell even hold it until she gets a pull up on to go to bed to poo. Im so tired of washing poo panties, if she wears a pullup shell peeAnswer Question
My friends sat their child on the toilet until they went. No matter how long that it took.
I use a "pee-pee" potty song and dance. As well as a "poo-poo" potty song and dance. All of the children that I've used that with have loved it (including both of mine. I was a nanny).

I think that potty training for peeing and pooping are two different things. And for some kids pooping in the potty is a very scary experience. I would continue to work on the peeing part of potty training and back off the other for a couple of weeks. Continuing to push her when she isn't emotionly ready my cause her to hold onto her poop which could lead to some medical problems. Re introduce pooping in the potty after a few weeks. Make it as positive as you can. Make a sticker chart or get a jar filled with small favors or her favorite treats. Let her know everytime she poops in the potty she gets a a sticker or treat. Read to her kids books on pooping. A good one is Everyone Poops by Taro Gomi. Take away the pull ups and just roll with it. If she has accidents don't punish her for it just keep it positive. Good luck.
