Re: How to help a child poop on the toilet?
My daughter would go hide in the closet and refused to poop in the potty long after she tinkled in it regularly. I finally bribed her with ice cream, then there was no going back for her. But I think it just happened because she was ready. Also I gave her a favorite book and some privacy to just sit there. I agree with the mamas that say to watch for cues or use their regular timing (after nap, after eating), then say, 'it's time to go sit on the potty' and just go try. She'll get it eventually. Important not to get too stressed about it or she'll pick up on that. Good luck, Mama!
