I posted last week about A and get dislike for pooing on the potty. So she's doing really well with the wees and tells us most of the time when needs to go, loves using the toilet and washing hands etc, she loves a routine! But it seems over the last few days she starting to hold her poo in and is spending most of the day quite distressed about it and cuddling someone all day, I took her to the gp this am as was worried about constipation but all felt fine. She was unable to tell me what to do and suggested high fibre diet, which she has and lots of praise, which we are doing.
I have been thinking about just going back to nappies but she had worn a pull-up today and had still maintained bladder control still
any ideas ladies? x

Would a reward chart work for her? Give her a massive star or shape of her choice when she has a poo and she gets something when she has 5/10 stars.

I have had this with my daughter, she was great when we first trained but 3 months on she went backwards with poos. Reward charts worked for a bit with us, I created one with loads of pictures and images of Peppa pig with a happy face and one with a sad face. If she did the poo in her pants we talked about peppa having a sad face and vice versa. she got a toy of her choice once she had done 10 poos.
She did loose a bit of interest in the chart and nursery suggested something with instant rewards. So we now have a large box of Haribo sweets, she gets 1 sweet for wees and 2 sweets for poos which she puts into her own decorated pot. at the end of the day she gets to eat the sweets that are in the pot. But if she has any accidents throughout the day all the sweets go back into the pot and she has to start again. I wasn't sure on using sweets as a bribe to start with but had got to the point where I was willing to try anything and it's working so far!!!
