Hi ladies! I posted on here a couple of months ago needing tips for potty training in general. Well DD is doing very well with it and she's been in panties for a few days now with very few accidents. She pees on the potty great and can hold it in for an hour or sometimes more at a time during the day and has woken up dry from her naps and nighttime sleep these days.
But she still poops in her panties. Only once I caught her in time and she pooped on the potty. She poops a couple of times a day, so that can get messy and we're getting ready for a trip to Europe at the end of next week, so I need some advise in how to encourage her to poop on the potty. How long does it take for them to get it typically from the point they are pee-trained?

Alexa's still pooping in her panties and I keep encouraging her to go to the bathroom , but she's still not there yet with that. SHe's great with the peeing during the day. No accidents in over a week.
We are leaving for Europe on Friday and I'm thinking of putting her in pull-ups for the duration of the trip - simply because she typically poops twice a day and I won't always be able to take the time to clean up her mess. We'll put her back in panties as soon as we get to where we are going (except for around sleep times because she's still hit or miss with waking up dry at night).
Hope it works well!

I am glad you asked this, because my daughter refuses to poop on the potty too. I thought I'd beat her at her own game by making her naked, and she ran into the kitchen and pooped on the floor before I caught her. I am thinking she is not quite ready for #2 yet, but I am glad I read the tips others gave you. so thanks everyone!
In the begining it was hit or miss on pooping in the potty. At one point, she managed to catch herself and sit on the potty in time. I praised her through the roof. She didn't always catch it in time and I would have to clean it up, but when she did make it I'd praise her like crazy and it wasn't long after that that she would go all day with next to no accidents. I had her almost completely trained except for a pee accident once in a while. That is until her dad and I split up about a year ago, I'm just really getting back into it. So I wish us both luck!
My dd poop trained about 2-3 weeks after she pee trained. It was pretty easy looking back on it, but at the time I remember feeling like she'd never be able to poop on the potty.
She was almost three. I always knew when she was about to poop (she'd go hide). So I kept my hawk-like eyes on her and when she hid I'd ask if she'd try on the potty. She always willingly sat on the potty, but just couldn't do it. I remember her saying, "I can't do it Mommy. I just can't do it." I felt totally bad for her because she really wanted to. So we'd put a diaper on and she'd go hide and poop in that. Then one day she just did it. We were both totally surprised and proud! There was no looking back after that.
I was just coming here to post this same thing. My daughter has been peeing in the potty for over a week with no pee accidents, yet she always poops in her panties.
I almost feel like its just that she is so active she cannot stand to sit on the potty and wait for the poop to come. She also goes and hides behind a recliner in the living room when she goes. I have tried putting her on the potty when I can tell she needs to poop and she will sit for just 3 seconds and jump off.
I started potty training in June, and pooping has been a problem since then! He has only pooped on the potty 5 times in the past 3 months, lol. I have a chart with stickers, bribe him with new toys, chuck e cheese, outings, etc. When he did poop, I made a HUGE deal out of it, and we called grandma & papa & everyone. But he still won't do it. I thought we had it b/c he did it two days in a row. But then quit.
He hides to poop so I try to catch him, but even if I do, he'll sit on the potty for a few seconds then say "I dont have to go" or flat out refuse to get on the potty even if I put him on it... I'm so frustrated =( I'm scared he's gonna be pooping in his pants til he's like 4 or 5!!!! He turns 3 in oct....
I never tell my daughter the difference between panties and pull ups. she knows they are different, but I still call them panties. When Brooke pooped in her panties, I normally ask her where her pee goes, she says in the potty, and I ask her where poop goes, she replies with in the potty, I ask her where mommy and daddy poop, I never try to make her feel bad, just want to educate her on where her poop is supposed to go. I also rewarded poops with 2 smarties. She's been potty trained (day trained) for just over a month now, no accidents at all.
I tried threatening to throw the panties out when she poops in them, but she asks to take them to the garbage...so that doesn't work with her...but might for your DD if she LOVES her panties.
