Re: How to help a child poop on the toilet?
I always miss DD's poop signals because she almost always poops when she wakes up, either from napping or in the morning. I think that she is most relaxed then, and she isn't consciously holding it in. I think during the day, she just doesn't want to poop in her undies (or the toilet) so badly that she won't relax enough to let it out. She will talk about it until she is blue in the face, but will.not.allow herself to poop. I think this may just be a "time cures all" issue.
