you know what you can do. reward her with what I call big girl panties and tell her that they are hers and no ones elses and it means that shes growing up. Thats what i did with my little one. And when she pottied in them I took them away. She was so upset because she felt like she was a baby with pull ups. So she decided that it was time and went potty on the toilet. I also would recommend everytime you go to the bathroom have her in there with you so she see what mommys doing and girls tend to want to be like there moms

Quoting Sinatria:

How old is she?? i did two things...I put a bubblegum bank outside of the bathroon that took change. Everytime she went to the bathroom and used it i would give her a penny to get a piece of Gum. (they sell sugarfree gum) Next when that got old I got her best friend involved. My daughter and my father are two peas in a pod and what i did was have him tell her that big girls dont use the bathroom in pull ups only in her potty (whatever he says is gold. lol) after he told her that a few times she would cry when i tried to put her pull ups on, even at night.



we did a little baggy of toy snakes. My daughter wanted the whole collection. Plus she would go to the bathroom with me everytime to show her how the big girls do it! And REALLY encourage it. When she did good we high fived cheered and did a jig when she had an accident she got encouragement that we all have accidents and we'll try again later. I'm proud of her... hang in there, you guys will get it!

I ran out of pull ups one night and I stood in my daughters room and told her we have no more pull ups so she's potty trained and better not pee in her bed. She was a couple months shy of being 3 and it worked fine! hmmm, I think that worked fine for us because I knew the risk I was taking and it was worth not having to run to the store for more pull-ups. Also I had a plastic cover on the bed under the sheets. good luck!

I struggle with potty training also!!! my biggest problem was that I used pampers and pull ups as a safety net. When my daughter turn "3" yes 3 was when I had finally had enough. We (my daughter and myself) had a cermony, we threw away every diaper and pull up that was in the house. I started her on schedule, first thing in morning on the pot, 15-20minutes after eating on the pot, nothing to drink after 7pm, on the pot before bed, I carried a change a clothes everywhere, talk to her about letting mommy know when she had to go, if she had an accident I would not get mad at her I'd still take her to the bathroom in order for her to begin to conect that when she gets that urge to go she needed to go to the pot! Good luck and be patient!

Hi.. don't know if this could help... i kinda ran away from the problem... i had mine tried twice for total about 10+months. at the first time, things went pretty well, but somehow he got scared of the potty... after few month of rest, he did try the potty again, but still can't stay on it... i ended up sent him to our local early learning center which what we called "day care". they have this 2, 3 years old class that they do potty traning... i sent him in 2 days a week.. and worked with the teacher... in about 3 months.. he's diaper free. back than, he was already 3.5 yr. (some said, he's just slow than others, that he wasn't ready.. but i originally hoped him could be ready for preschool..) good luck on the messy job...

I used to worry about that all the time when my son was younger......yes they are expensive and his pediatrician advised me not to use them., They do not like the feeling of wetness in their undies so they tend to get upset when they have to go and you can usually get them to the potty in time before an accident happens. My son was late in training, just before he began pre-school at age 3 is when he finally got it down......a few accidents now and then but he got thru it. My advice is what others told me, try not to stress so much about it, each child is different and has their own clock. Maybe take her shopping to pick out her new panties and make a big deal over them on how she should be careful to use the potty so not to ruin her panties.....just relax, chances are she will be trained before you know it.

I found pull ups just confused my son when he potty trained. They felt like nappies to him anyway. My advice is, leave potties around the rooms your girl uses most so she gets used to them; but she'll do it when she's ready. Just keep trying her every couple months, and when weather is good, let her run around without a nappy for a while if you can. Rushing her will stress you and put her off trying. Don't let other people pressure you either, if their kids are out of nappies, it's fine for them, but it's not right for your little one yet. There's no right or wrong age for this. Good luck :o)
