  • well she seems really, really ready. maybe ditch the diapers???

    otherwise stop and take a breather for awhile. take like a 2-4 week break and re-group. take her 1 piece sleeps (I'm sure she has a few!) and snip the feet off of them. put them on backwards, zipper up the butt/back so she cannot strip.

    this will buy you time while u figure out your potty training game plan, since it's going sooo badly right now! good luck

  • I agree backwards clothes and pj's will help with the getting into her diaper and playing with poop. I suggest finding a way to stay home for a period of a few days, cancel dinner plans or shopping trips. Ditch the diaper and put her in actual underwear. If you have carpets cover them in plastic, and do a potty training intense boot camp. I'm assuming she's at least 3 since this is in preschoolers and at that age she's plenty old enough to know not to play with her poop. A baby is just exploring and still learning, at 3 she knows that's gross and wrong. Positive reinforcement is a good way to go, reward her every single time she attempts to go potty/goes potty. If she messes herself talk about how that's not what big girls do, and this behavior doesn't get a reward. Unless there's something medically wrong she'll eventually come around. Typically children of that age want to please.
