My son Cayman loves it when I read his Fuzzy Bear goes Potty book. He keeps bringing it to me. I agree with the no pressure approach. Let her play with the potty, keep offering encouragement and keep talking about the process. Establishing a routine is really good too. Like right before bath or first thing in the morning sit him/her on the potty for a min. or even if its a few seconds, then when he/she is ready to get up let it happen. We do the sit, flush, close the lid and wash hands routine and he's only actually peed once so far.

We bought our daughter a child's potty seat that fits in the regular toilet seat. We keep it next to the toilet in her bathroom. Every night when she goes to take her bath she walks in the bathroom and looks around. About two weeks ago she took an interest in the potty so I showed her the seat and how to put it on the toilet and then I sat her on it while I got her bath ready. Now every night she sits on the potty seat while I draw her bath and we sing about going potty in the toilet. I'm hoping she will show interest outside of bath time too sometime soon!

I actually just started potty training my daughter 17 mo old ( i know a little early) but i did some research first... it helps if they see you doing it... i know it seems kind of weird but i have to say it works. I bought Hayden a little potty and sat her on it...the first time was a no go...but after that it was golden.... if i say potty she runs right to the bathroom... also i've read if you give them a treat (like fruit or cookies) that encourages them, and a potty dance.... everyone needs a potty dance lol good luck it's not the easiest thing....

You have to make them feel like they are deciding to do it - they are in charge. Otherwise they will resist and make it miserable.

Don't rush it, children do this at their own pace. My may 2008 baby is using the potty (not brave enough to put big girl panties on her yet) while my 32 month old wants NOTHING to do with the toilet. I started by taking Phaya in the bathroom with me everytime that I go (Im pregnant so that is very often). We sing a little "pee pee in the potty" song and she loves sitting there with me. Hope this helps.

Have you tried a child sized potty seat that sits on the floor, or a kids potty seat that sits on the regular big people toilet? My son Hunter didn't like sitting on the adult potty...he would SCREAM and carry on & on, but once we bought a potty seat for the floor he was much more comfortable. As far as her not likeing the underwear...Maybe try the Huggies Pull-ups? Hunter thinks they're great because they have Buzz Light Year on them =) Good Luck!! Potty training is a LOT of work, but SOooo worth it in the end.

She won't learn until she's ready. One of my friends tried teaching her oldest son around 2 years or so and he just didn't want to, he wasn't ready. I think he finally was potty trained at 3 years or something! Man I hope my son is ready sooner than that!
