my daughter will be three the end of jan and a month ago she was doing the same thing. my doc told me to just stop and leave it alone when shes ready she will do it. she now has went by herself 3 diff times. i dont make her sit on it during the day she just sits on it when she wants to.

I have a friend with 3 kids that told me she skipped the Potty and just put a potty seat on the toilet bowl directly and just trained her kids that way. She says that it avoided another transition from potty to toilet bowl. But I've just posted a question to see what other moms think. My soon to be 20 month old son just started showing a little sign by touching his diaper and saying pee.

KaeVii wears pull ups sometimes. i have a seat that she puts on the big potty. try letting her go maybe even a week not mentioning the potty then try having her sit on it and see if there is a difference. waiting for her to be ready is what helped kae. i didnt want to wait i thought she was ready but she wasnt. even today she went sat on the potty by herself and went pee. she only does it when she wants to now. i praise her and put her diaper back when shes done. hopefully in a week or too she will be more comfortable. you dont want her scared of it. maybe even giving her a book or something just for when shes on the potty to relax/occupy her.
