My DD (19 months) has been great at doing wee in the potty for the last 2 months. When she is at home, in her training pants, she happily goes to the potty herself, drops her pants and does what she needs to.
Poos, on the other hand, are a different story. She tells us she is about to do them so we take her over to the potty. She proceeds to get off and poo, standing, next to the potty.
I don't know where to go from here. How can I get her to poo on the potty - I am getting over cleaning my floor!
Any advice is much appreciated!

Can you try her on the toilet? Get a step and the trainer seat insert ..

Thanks! We have one of those cushion seats that go on the toilet seat but she doesn't like it - I think because she can't get her feet on the floor. Perhaps the step will make her feel more secure - I'll have to invest!
I find it strange that she likes to stand. Surely that goes against what feels natural?!

My 28 month old dd had a very flexible potty training. I mean I just give her time really until she's ready.
I just had another baby and didn't really make potty training for her seriously. We borrowed some baby books about potty training at the library and she follows what she sees on the book!
