Absolutely! Both of my children were closer to three than two. And I felt the pressure of people saying "Potty trained by two!" that it made me crazy. Just relax and don't push too hard. She'll get it eventually.

My daughter was out of diapers at about 18 months, we did a party thing :) We sung a song "Party on the Potty" I made lyrics up LOL she loved it but said I was a crazy mommy but she loved me! Oh well, it worked!

Very helpful. Yes, my daughter is still wearing diapers. She's getting the hang of it little by little to let me know she needs to be change. From time to time she even says to help her to the potty, too. :)

Yeah its fine, They all go at there own speed. I am from a large family and have seen many littles one train to use the potty. If they aren't ready wait a week or two, then try again. When they are ready they will do it. Just don't push them, And really make a big deal out of it when they do go! And they will want to do it again. Good luck and just be paitient, it will happen before you know it.

Yes, I worked in Day care for over three years and they had a rule that your child had to be potty trained between 18 months and 2 and a half years. Each child is different, My daughter was potty trained by 18 months, but i full acredit this to the fact that i worked in daycare and tired of changing diapers lol. Just keep incoruaging it and it will happen! :)

Yes, it's okay, what have you tried as far as potty training methods? I had a hard time withmy daughter as well. She would make it thru the night fine, and #2 but the day is where we had touble. My grandmother told me what to do and I kid you not she was trained in one day. I made her two little dresses from left over fabric, let her walk around the house in them but no underwaer. She started to tinkle and said "mommy" so I said run so we ran to the bathroom (of course she didn't make it) but I told her good job, I had put some water in her training toilet before hand so when she got up I took it and dumped into the toilet so she felt as though she did make it. I got her cleaned up and then we did round two, by the third time she did in on her own!!!

Yes it is ok. She will let you know when she is ready. All children are ready at different times.
