piper will be 2 aug 8th. She is very smart and can follow directions. She is ready to come out of diapers, but i feel rusty on how to really start the process. My oldest just put on her big girl pants and that was that. My son took alot of work. He was not potty trained until he was 3. and that was challenging

My daughter turned on Aug 1. We have started potty training. I have a step stool and a seat that fits on the toilet, she has no problem sitting on the toilet and she even asks to. She has only gone potty on the toilet 3 times, she will tell me pee pee and wants to sit on the toilet but it is after she has already gone. She even asks to sit on the toilet when we are out and about. I hope with time she will switch to telling be before she goes. I have just followed her lead and take her about every hour.

Well, my older daughter just turned 3, and has a problem doing number 1 in the potty, she's gotten number 2 down completely and will tell you when she has to poo no matter where we are. Originally I tried the set time pottying, then went to a "potty bag" so whenever she went potty in her pot she got to choose a toy or candy out of her "potty bag". She's old enough to not like to sit in her own bowel so that stopped almost immediately. Still trying to get her to pee in it, but she doesn't seem as eager with it. Any suggestions? I'm currently introducing my now 2 year old to the potty, but she seems to think it's a game, I'm not sure she's ready yet, but will continue on.

Hi there, I have a stubborn daughter too. My son was clean and dry day and night within a week, but then I didn't start him until 2 1/2 but my daughter is proving more of a challenge. We give her a chocolate button each time she does something on the potty, I ask her to sit on it every 20 mins or so and she gets BIG praise when she gets something in, even if it is more by luck than judgment!! Also a biggie for me is that I always put the pants on, I never revert back to a nappy for the day because it is more convenient, I think it confuses them and sets back the process so if we are going anywhere I just take the travel potty, lots of spare clothes and hope for the best rather putting a nappy back on.

I hear your pain! My daughter is turning 2 Aug. 13, and she refuses to let go of the diapers. Give her a week or two to forget about the potty and then surprise her with her old or new potty chair by wrapping it up like a present and let her decorate it w/ tons of stickers. It made my daughter excited to at least try again. We have a cute candy jar of M&M's and we give her 2 when she actually makes potty, and she gets to hold her favorite Pez candy dispenser while on the potty (this keeps her sitting ). This is all I got, we need help as well.

What I did with my oldest daughter was we have a clock that chimes every hour and when it chimed it was time to try going potty. It is not working so well with my youngest daughter though.Hope it might help

The only thing I can say is to get a small potty seat for her, but do bear in mind that though your oldest daughter had it down easily, it may not be as easy for your little one. Then again, girls do pick up potty training a lot easier than boys. Good luck!
