My 3 yr old granddaughter wears underpants and never has an accident BUT when she has to poop she insists on a diaper so she can go in it. We are stumped as to how to get her to poop in the toilet. We are sick of changing crappy diapers, any suggestions???

She'll be fine and she'll go in the potty when she is ready. It's all about control at that age and the only things kids can control at three are body functions! Be happy she is going and not holding it as some kids do. When she has to go give her a choice between diaper and toilet, don't make a big deal out of it. You could try to dump the feces into the toilet and wave goodbye to it with her standing there. Some kids see feces as extentions of themselves and are horrified that it is being flushed away! Good luck!

this worked for my boys, I had them sit backwards on the toilet, so they weren't hanging off the end, so to speak. They seemed to be more comfortable in that position.

I started my kids (girls) with nice frilly, satin panties that once they saw them folded in the drawer and were told when you can keep your diapers dry and clean, out the diapers go, and you start wearing these.
Didn't even take a week. Those panties were worth the extra cost.

Crappy diapers OR crappy underware?? Which would you rather change??
all children go at their own pace. By the time they hit school all will be fine

She'll do it when she's ready, but not being gross, but maybe if she realizes that everyone goes on the pot and it's safe, maybe that would help. Maybe she is afraid of losing part of herself. I can sympathsize with having to change them. Personally I have one each and we never used anything but plain underwear to train them. I didn't buy them the padded ones either. Just fun ones, colors and frills and cartoon characters. But what works for one doesn't mean it will for everyone. The other side of this, and just being nosy, is she on the beginning side of 3 or the end side of 3?

She just turned 3. I was pooping one day and she came to the bathroom so I said Grandma goes poop like a big girl and she said mommy goes like a big girl too but I still little. She never pees her pants just asks for a diaper goes and squats in the corner and tells me when she is done. I am going to try flushing it next time she goes. SAhe knows how much nicer it would be then having ro lay down and have her butt cleaned. She's lucky she is the love of my life after only having boys!

She'll be fine. I was thinking that maybe if she was on the old end of 3 maybe you should ask for the pediatrician's advice, but she's still young. Maybe make a big production of putting in the pot? Have a special toy that she can have if and only if she poops in the pot? Oh and we used a potty chair, to start ours out.

I just prefer to go in my nice frilly, satin panties and then throw them away. They are 6 for 4 bucks at Walmart and save on having to buy TP.....

My daughter was having a similar problem with my older grandson, he didnt want to go poop on the potty either. My sister who works with developely challenged children (my grandson is not developely challenged)suggested taking him to visit a friuend with a newborn baby. Then explain to him little babies do not know any better and cannot say when they ahve to go potty. They have to poop in their diapers, but big boys dont. It worked! He did have an occasional accident, but they stopped once he was in Pre-K as he saw no one there had "accidents".He does occasionally wet the bed. We were very angered to hear that his Dad was putting him in time out in the morning after yelling at him for wetting the bed. This is not a discipline issue, and we let him know that. The pediatrician has told us that he will eventually outgrow those occasional accidents, and they ONLY happen for the most part at his Dad's. Very strange.

Did anyone ever consider the possibility that, if a child is breast-fed until age six, they MIGHT not take to potty-training until 11 or 12??
