My 3 year old is the same way with not wanting panties but using the pull up as a diaper! I told her that we needed to give her diapers to her new baby cousin now that she is a big girl. She still prefers pull ups over panties but is having less accidents a day now so it seems to be a motivator:) Now, I just need to think of a way to have her tell me when she needs to go and we'll be accident free!

Quoting Kristy :

My daughter is 2 1/2. We had the same issues. She absolutely refused to wear big girl panties even with 2 big sisters or to even try to use the potty. She would use her potty for a stool to brush her teeth before she would pee in it. I first tried pull ups during the day, and that was no different than diapers for her. Finally, after bribing with toys, candy, new underware, the whole nine yards, I told I was not going to buy her any more diapers because she was a big girl now and she had to wear big girl panties. One weekend I made especially for her we wore big girl panties all day, it was magic, not giving her the choice in the matter was the trick. However, I did reward her after every time she used to the potty with stickers and candy. It literally worked over night. I started all of this 2 weeks ago and she is wearing panties all day long even at day care, except for at night of course. She has only had 1 accident at school. It a blessing not to have to buy 2-3 boxes of diapers a month.


I think I'll have to try your method with my daughter. She does the same thing with pull ups and stuff. It's insane.

Have you try to have her go when you go? Maybe if she see you sit on the potty and go than maybe she will also.
