I have a 2 year old daughter occasionally she will tell us she needs to use the potty and sometimes she will sometimes not...but everytime i change her diaper i ask her where she's supposed to pee pee she'll tell me in the potty like a big girl so she knows its just getting her to realize she needs to go in the potty before she does in her diaper.

I'm potty training the last of my three boys - he's 26 months and we've been working on it for about 3 months now. He's out of diapers during the day and at first he wouldn't go in the potty either. Lot's of accidents in his "big boy pants". Now I just put him on the big potty about every hour - like clockwork and we chat for a bit. I don't make a big deal about if he doesn't go while he sits there, it's just his time to try. At first nothing...now just about every time I put him on he goes in the potty. He's now going on his own sometimes in his little potty but I still put him on the big potty about every hour. Good luck - I'm excited I've been changing diapers conistantly for seven years straight - I'm ready for the freedom!! :)

Get one of those baby dolls that u put water in them and they go in the toilet. Show her how the baby does it and (this sounds so stupid but it works most of the time) Throw the baby doll a Potty Party go all out cake ice cream friends and family balloons u got the idea...anyways when she see's this it might (really should) trigger her to want the attention the doll got for going in the potty, and when their our accidents just act like nothing happened and take them to the potty and make them sit for a bit and then Start all over again....My reason my girl its potty trained is my fault...Im not able to help her out, im not around and the Babysitter doesnt want to potty train...Well peace

I am also trying to train my 2 year old Daughter. She sometimes seems afraid to sit and go in her potty. She cries to have a diaper on. We've had lots of accidents on the floor bc she doesn't like to sit on her potty. However she will not keep her diaper on either so I'm stuck in a pickle not knowing what to do with her? lol

We started potty training about a month ago. I started off just giving her a sticker for her chart every time she sat on the potty. I'd take her when I went and if she sat on her potty then she got a sticker (the girl LOVES stickers!) I got rid of the diapers and only put a pull up on her at naptime and bedtime. I made a big deal about the "princess panties" (the pull ups had princesses on them) being only for big girls who go potty. During the day, panties it was! Yes, she had accidents, but I still wouldn't budge on the diapers. The first time she actually went in the potty, she was wearing a pull up and about to go to bed for the night and told me she needed to go and that was it. I sat with her and we talked about pushing with her belly (still have to do that sometimes for #2). I did give her a small sucker (like a dum dum pop) every time she went to the potty (which quickly replaced the stickers - she loves suckers more than stickers!) Since then, we've only had a couple of accidents in about 2-3 weeks. We have had no problem going #2 or even going out in our big girl panties! (By the way, after about a week, she eventually forgot about the suckers. She'll mention it to me occasionally, but I'm not giving her suckers all day long! :) Patience is the key. You can't make her go and if she feels like she's going to get in trouble, chances are she won't go either. You just have to find what works for her and stick with it.

I always tried to give them something to drink then wait a half hour and set them on it and try running some water while they sit there. Sometimes if you get them doing something they will forget they are on the toilet and go. Once you get them to go it gets easier.

its all about timing and once they learn the feeling of going in a potty then it's all about learning how to control muscles. MY son was very hard he is 3 now but my 2yr old girl tells me she wants to us the potty and she is good about the peeing if we can make it on time i did bribe my son with jelly beans and i hate to say i made him stay on the toilet till he did then he got a jelly bean...everyone is different...I have Heard High reviews on using those baby dolls who pee in the toilets and then throwing the baby doll a potty party sounds silly but some kids it works on i know Dr Phil had a thing on it last year...best of luck
