My daughter (almost 5) is potty trained with peeing, but not pooping. We have finally gotten her to the point of wearing a pull-up while sitting on the potty, then changing the pull-up and putting the poop in the potty because "that is where the poop goes".

Or could put a few pieces of toilet paper into the toilet bowl prior too and explain to her that it'll stop water from splashing πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

And just keep explaining its just water, it wont hurt and we can wipe it off after πŸ™‚ good luck!
