Hi lovely ladies.
This is my first time on the toddlers forum. I'm usually found on the TTC forum, but I've had a toddler issue I just can't resolve.
DD will be 3 in May. She's been peeing in the potty since Thanksgiving. She has only pooped in the potty maybe 3 times ever. She's at a home daycare where she's in undies all day except naps. We follow the same plan at home (3 days a week) and have her in a pull-up during naps and nightime. She rarely wakes up dry after a nap and NEVER has woken up dry in the morning. So, we haven't had the guts to go pull-up free during sleep times.
So, here's the deal. She will fall asleep and then poop. It's nuts, but we have to change her nearly every night in the middle of the night (well right before we go to bed). She doesn't even wake up when we change her and this morning, she thought she had a poop in her pull-up b/c she didn't remember us changing her in the night. I'm not exactly sure if she poops right before she falls asleep, but there have been nights where I'll check on her and she'll be fast asleep without a poop and an hour later, she'll have a poop.
We have tried incentives, sticker charts, watching videos while sitting on the potty. The few times she's gone is when I've helped her stand on the potty. It's actually like she is birthing her poop! We have tried the floor potty and the real toilet. Nothing's really worked.
She's going to be starting preschool in August. They have a 100% potty trained policy, so she can't be in pull-ups even during nap time. I'm wondering if we just need to ditch the pull-ups altogether.
Would love any ideas!
