How do you get a little girl to poop on the potty?

My daughter is pretty much potty trained, but only when it comes to peeing on the potty. She will not poop on the potty what so ever. I honestly think she holds it in until she gets pull ups or panties back on. I don't know what to do any more.

  • I have done that, but she still will not go. It doesnt not matter how long she sits on the potty either, she will hold it in.

  • My oldest actually pooped on the potty before learning to pee on the potty ( she has a constipation problem and for some reason it helps her go better) my advice was going to be the same as the PP. To catch her pooping and rush her to the potty. Try a reward system, it is worth a try.

  • Some sort of neat reward. Have the rewards get better and better each time.
