So DD started in with a potty regression in the months before DS was born in July. I let it go and let her just wear pullups. Then a few weeks before she started preschool, the director, to whom I had written about the issue (because she's supposed to be PT'd) suggested we try setting a timer and having her go when the timer went off. Since then she rarely pees her pants unless we forget to set the timer or remind her. But she still poops all the time, every day, unless we get lucky and happen to have a potty time at just the right moment. The timer works for keeping a bladder relatively empty, but alas, it does not work with poop!
So my question is, do I treat her like I would a baby with a dirty diaper - ie, as soon as you realize it's poopy you change it? Or do I wait until she says something? Because she never says anything. It's like it doesn't bother her at all. It would bother ME to do that, but would being dirty help her realize she needs to put it in the right place? I kinda think she really wouldn't care. Any suggestions? Or am I doing the most I could possibly be doing, and when she wants to, she will go on her own? Any success stories out there to give me hope???
