My daughter is 22 months, Ive been attempting potty training since she turned one. She has on and off days, some days she'll go through two diapers because she'll tell me she has to go potty, and other days we'll go through a lot more. When she was younger she thought that bath and potty were the same thing even tho we would never call them the same thing, we would show her the potty and show her the bath. I know that now she knows the difference for sure, she can say potty- poo poo and bath. But when I ask her if she has to go potty she says yes and has a fit when I put her on the potty because she wants a bath. It doesn't happen like that all the time, but it does more often then I think it should. I'm not sure what to do about it. I don't want to force her on the potty and then she hates it, but I don't want her to stay in diapers for much longer. I know it's not my choice but I really would like to her her potty trained asap! Please give me some advice!

Let her know bathtime is her time to get clean. Potty time is pee and poop time. As long as she's not allowed to poop in the bathtub, even if it's an accident, she should learn pretty quickly. It might take a little time to explain it to her, but try to show her what u mean when ur in the bathroom. Tell her when u have to potty or when ur going to take a shower. She'll figure it out.
