Exclamation Won't poop on the potty!

Danielle is driving us crazy! We are trying so hard not to be frustrated and remain calm but this is getting so ridiculous.
She is totally pee potty trained, she will wait until the last minute but never has accidents.
The problem is pooping. We can't get her to poop on the potty to save her life, (and it may be coming to that soon)
She knows when she has to go because she will go hide and go in her pants. We have tried rewards of every shape size and color, no go, we have tried letting her sit on the potty and watch Calliou on my kindle fire, no go.
We are totally at a loss. We have tried reasoning with her, she is 3 and has more than enough understanding and vocabulary...she says "Oh that's disgusting" When she poops in her pants.
She will also withhold her poop and when she goes it is this GIANT firm ball of poop.
HELP!!

Oh, no! I'm so sorry! A constipated kiddo is the PITS! Sarah has been constipated before but it was more when she was 6/7 years old and I HATED.EVERY.MINUTE of it.

Does she fear pooping on the potty? Is she grossed out by pooping on the potty? Is it the splashing toilet water? If so, maybe you could change to a small, kiddo potty?

Oh, Melanie, I wish I could help! That totally sucks!!

Melanie I'm racking my brain as to what finally convinced Joseph to go poop in the potty. I think it may have been when we had to go across town alot and he couldn't hide to go. Now he has mostly mastered it but still has one issue of not trying to go before naps and car rides. He hasn't had a car accident in ages but has poopy pants during nap 75% of the time.

Oh my- I can feel your pain! When Kendall was potty training, she also got the #1 down pat, but would ask me for a diaper to go #2. It got old real fast! We also did have a couple occasions of her holding it in for a few days, poor thing was miserable and wouldn't eat dinner. I was trying to get her to eat anything that would "make" her go, mixing baby food prunes in with applesauce, etc.

I think what finally started her doing it in the potty was when we were somewhere with my friend and her little girl (who is a few months younger than Kendall) and she took her to bathroom. When she came back, and told us that she went #2, Kendall immediatly was like "oh, I have to go too!" (this same thing is what motivated ger to start going #1 in the potty...seeing other kids do it) At home, she would only go #2 on her little potty at first until I hid it and told her she couldn't do that anymore because she going "big girl poop" and it was too much to go into that little potty. (plus she wanted to do it in the living room while watching TV.....I mean, babies going in their diapers wherever is one thing, but that was just gross...and smelly!) We did away with the potty chart and started a prize bin. Everytime she went #2 she got a small prize. But was REALLY motivated her was temporary tattoos; she was obsessed with them and LOVED getting those. But she still wouldn't go at daycare or out anywhere, until.....

She started attending daycare full time. At first she would hold it and only go at home b/c they never used a pull up or anything for her. By the 3rd week or so the teacher said she was going for them on the potty. And then that turned into going anywhere the urge hit her, in restaurants, stores, didn't matter.

Good luck!
