Help and Thank You for responding. No matter what you do or say to your granddaughter, she will poop in the toilet when SHE is ready. Any professional will tell you the same thing. The arrival of the baby may have caused her to regress. You can either place her back in pull ups or keep her in underwear and REALLY praise her when she poops in the toilet. Do not make a big deal about accidents. It will make things worse. She still is young and most children are not completely potty trained until 4 or almost 5 and still at that age they have night time accidents.
