Pooing in the Nappy

My little daughter of 3 is fully potty trained in the day when it comes to weeing . As soon as she wants to make a poo she asks me to put the Nappy on. I try to put her on the toilet but she wants that Nappy on. How should I go about this now.

This is very common indeed. Don't put any pressuer on your daughter for a while. Give her time and then try to potty train her again. Offer her rewards if she gets things right and make a big fuss about any success. In the meantime use the pull-up nappies when she says she needs a nappy.
