My daughter will be 4 in June, will wear real panties(with basically no accidents) but insists on going to the potty in a Pullup. She can hold it and tell me she has to go but if I try to put her on potty first (seat or toilet insert) she freaks out like she's afraid of it. I don't want to push her and risk freaking her out even more but now with holding it some nights (especially 3times this week) she will go in her sleep and the pull up overflows; soaking EVERYTHING. Not only is this gross and a pain in the butt but she feels bad on top of it.
I probably already know the answers but any suggestions on how to get her to sit would be greatly appreciated. We have made the chart, used little toys, outings and special places she likes, figured out a big prize toy she wants and will get that when she finally goes on the potty (much less just sits on it) and nothing works. The big prize is working to get the interest there again as since our recent move and new little brother all progress we had made is gone. We have to get this moving along as we all want her to go to school but the one she's planned for states she must be potty trained first. Thus back to square one.
