Re: 3.5 girl will not poop in potty--peepee not a problem
My daughter was 2.5 when we had issues with pooping on the potty. She, too, would go in her panties. What worked for her was allowing her to be naked when she needed to go. I think she thought the panties were there as a safety net to catch it, but without them she needed a place for it to go, so she ran to the little potty. I could tell she needed to go so I would take off her bottoms and basically ignored her. If I asked her to go, she refused. But if I just let her go in her own time, just keeping my eye on her, it worked. I just made sure the little potty was easily accessible without my having to help her to get to it. Of course, we made a huge deal of it when she carried that little cup out to show us (yuk) Eventually she was comfortable with it and we didn't need to remove the clothes ahead of time, she just told us. Good luck. I know a lot of children that have issues with that. I'm expecting #3 and I'm sure I'll be dealing with that in no time at all.
