My 2 1/2 year old daughter has just started showing interest in potty training, we have tried off and on since she was about 14-15 months and before she never showed interest in using the potty. She would never actually use the potty it was like she was scared of it or something because she would sit on it and tell you what you do on it but wouldnt go on it, if she had to go she would ask for a diaper and instead of her peeing on the floor Id put one on her.

Long story short; On Tuesday night she really started showing interest in using the potty and actually went on it and was super excited and we celebrated :) but the second I put big girl underware on her she peed in them. The Wednesday she peed in the potty all day while we were home and even pooped in the potty. Besides telling her a million times and her having a million accidents does anyone have any ideas on how to introduce them to her? Should I just stick with my plan and slowly introduce them to her and let her run around naked all day/night until she gets potty training down? I want to actually be able to go out and do my errands with her but dont want her to pee in her clothes at the store or where ever we are.

With my daughter and big girl underwear I just kept telling her that her characters on her underwear didn't like getting "peepee" on them, they liked to stay dry. It worked for the most part

Yes I did let her pick them out in the store a few different pairs of them. Thats a good idea with the dress's, never crossed my mind, thanks

It will take some time. But you are on your way. Did you let her pick them out at the store. And yes you will some accidents while out. I put her in dresses they are less noticeable. That may not be the best answer but that is what I did. And carried extra clothes with me. But you are almost there. Good job.
