So serious.... she's 3. She does really good with peeing in the toilet all day everyday. But when it comes to pooping.... she acts like she is absolutely terrified of going poop on the toilet. She was on and off the potty every couple of mins for the last four hours. I'm with my mom taking my brother food when DH calls me. She shat on the floor, again.

This is the 3rd time since we started no diapers a couple of weeks ago. Every other time she poops, she manages to do it after she goes to bed or before we get up in the morning. Actually, she's gone poop in the toilet a couple of times but only after a 4 hour session like tonight.

DH said tonight she didn't even try to tell him, she just came to him, starting crying and pooped.

I'm just at a loss. I don't understand this. She acts scared to death to poop on the toilet but she's ok peeing on the toilet. Please, somebody, I need help with this!


EDIT:

Ok, sorry I hardly ever use CM mobile so I didn't check this until I got home.

We have tried everything under the sun. Bribery, making her sit there, letting her play games while she tried to go, explaining that it's nothing to be afraid of, everybody does it, etc, etc, etc.  We talk about hoe big girls go poop on the pootty, we ask her if she's a baby ora big girl and she says big girl. The only thing we haven't tried is a small potty simply because, she pees in it the big toilet just fine. I don't understand why the big toilet would scare her just for pooping.

My mom thought maybe the water splashing up but, after she initially starts pooping, she's happy, super excited because she gets a sucker and a sticker, it's that initial get going that scares her, I guess. 


And yes, 3 is a toddler. I've never heard of a kid under 4 going to preschool.

It's very common. Sometimes kids feel like they're losing a part of themselves when they poop in the potty. Just reassure her. She'll eventually come around.

Give her a game/computer whatever that she can play with while she is on the potty....use distraction

how about a small potty? Low to the ground, no water or loud flushing sounds?
