I need some advice. I was surfing MDC a few weeks ago and came across a thread that talked about the 3-day potty training method. Some kind soul had described the steps for each day. I told my husband about this method and we were on board for PT DD (23 months) this holiday weekend, since we'd have 4 whole days to work on training.
My first problem was that I couldn't find that original thread that got me motivated on the 3 day process, so I had to go by memory. It seemed that day 1 was no pants, and frequent sits on the potty. Eventually we'd put some pants (or undies) on her.. maybe day 3.... Clearly I can't remember much, so I just went with my own type of method. DD has been naked (lower half) for 2 days now, except for naps and night time. She has figured out that pee goes in the potty and even interrupted her dinner with whining so she could have a pee. We were pretty happy with the result. But now we're kind of stuck. I have no idea what the 'next steps' are, and am worried I will screw it up. DD has also hasn't pooped at all in day for the last 2 days. Last night she pooped in the tub (and we knew she had to go, but she was not interested to poop in the potty) and tonight I'm pretty sure she had to go but she didn't. She's been having loose stools for a little while, and goes at least 2x a day, so I'm wondering if she is holding her poop cause she is afraid/doesn't know what to do.
Does anyone have any advice for me about what the next steps should be? How do I get her to poop in the potty?
Would really appreciate tips from 3-day BTDT mamas!
