    Default Toilet training regression - what to do?

    My 2.5 yr old TT wonderfully within 3 days. By the end of the week she was only wearing a nappy for bed at night. She had her day sleep (2-3hrs)in undies. Used the potty before and after.
    Poo was always a struggle.
    by the end if week 2 she wouldn't keep her night nappy on, instead used the potty during the night. Still woke up wet though.
    We can't keep a nappy on her at night. I refuse to buy pull ups. But we just deal with it and keep persisting.

    6 weeks later she's had a total regression. Won't use potty or toilet. Won't poo. Screams at me all day long because she's in agony and needs to poo/wee. She holds it all in.
    shes wetting her bed during her day sleep.

    i don't want to go back to nappies, that doesn't make sense. What's going on and what should I be doing?

    No high hopes for replies apparently regression is common, I'm aware. I just don't know how to get thru it.
    go back to how we TT her in the first place?
    What did others do?

    My ds regressed at about 6 weeks. We let him wear a nappy when he was distressed but encouraged toilet visits and took him for regular sits on the toilet anyway.

    It lasted about a month then he went back to be perfect

    This is what we did for her initial tt. I have bought back her sticker rewards the last few days and still no go.

    Hmm maybe just put her back in nappies for a bit and keep encoraging the toilet but just to give her a break for a bit.

    I really dont know what else to suggest. Its so frustrating isnt it xx

    i put her in a nappy so she would do a poo. she did it straight away and straight away, i took the nappy off, cleaned her up and told her to use the potty for wee's. I dont know how this is helping her to do poo on the potty but at least she is not in any discomfort and has not been screaming at me all day today.
    i just dont knwo what else to do.

    Give her time. She knows when she needs to go so that is a good sign. People gave mentioned in the past that water splashing up frightens their kids, could you put a little bit of paper in the toilet to stop the splash?
