My daughter is 2 1/2 and is interested on using the potty. She isn't quite ready to activly potty train but I noticed when she starts pooping (potty or diaper) she doesn't push. She stands there and kinda holds it and repeativly states that she doesn't want to poop. (Her words exactly)
I've tried explaining that pooping is normal and even take her with me to show her that I poop too but it doesn't seem to be working.
I was wondering if anyone else has had "pooping fears" and how they dealt with it. I'm waiting for the "Everyone Poops" and "It Hurts When I Poop" books to arrive in the mail and wanted some ideas
