My dd is 2yrs and 3mths. We are on about week 3 of real potty teaching. It started out great, she would always pee on the potty but was afraid to poop on the potty. She does have GI issues that makes pooping an issue in general.

Welcome Amanda and Kevin.

She is doing very good,regressing after an illness is normal.

It sounds like her timing is a bit off,when she comes home from daycare,let her run around for a while naked so she will be able to see what is actually happening when she gets those feelings,when you go back to having her wearing her regular panties,put plastic panties on over them and let her know,when she is always dry and using the potty,she will not have to wear them anymore.

You are not being to hard on her,this is normal
