How can i get a dificult child to poop on the pot?

Started potty training 3 year old in January. She wears panties now all day and pees in the potty by herself. The problem is she poops in the evening as soon as they think shes asleep she gets up poops and takes off the pull up. Tried staying up catch her she poops a little then finishes in pull up. Help please.

  • if she's making a mess she needs to be punished, if not you just have to ignore it - you will not win the power struggle. my 25mo is fully trained.

  • Put her PJ's on backwards and make sure they are a one piece so she can't get at the zipper -we talked a lot to our son about pooping leaving diaper rashes and it will hurt VERY bad - he needs to go to the potty etc.
