Will only go to potty if naked!

My daughter is 27 months and has been potty training for 1 1/2 weeks. If she's naked from the waist down she will take herself to her potty to wee and poo, and won't have any accidents. If she's wearing underpants or cloth training pants, she'll wee and poo in her pants. While I don't mind her being naked at home, she obviously needs clothes on when we go out! I'm not sure how to proceed. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

We've had a breakthrough! For the last two days my daughter has been wearing underpants and taking them off to use her potty. Sometimes she'll pee a tiny bit in her pants as it takes her awhile to get them off. I think the catalyst was when she did a big, wet poo in her favourite Peppa Pig undies and I threw them in the bin. She doesn't want anymore of her nice pants to be thrown out! Lol! It's summer here in Australia, so I've been dressing her in light dresses and underpants so that she can easily just pull down her pants and use her potty. So there's progress after 2 weeks and 2 days of training.

I don't know that this will solve the situation, but for going out of the house, have you tried the training pants with the plastic over the top as an alternative to  the pull-ups?  I didn't want my daughter to get confused with the pull-ups/diapers, so that is what I would use at night.  It really helped with cleaning up accidents, and she could still feel when she had gone in her pants.



Wish I had some better ideas for you.  Hopefully something will just click for them and your misery will be over!

I have the very same problem with my lil one who is 27 months also. My daughter is completely potty trained if naked waist down. Throw some underwear on her and its like she is wearing a diaper. I wish I knew what to do!!!!  My daughter has been at home potty trained for 3 weeks with no end in sight of going with pants on. :(     So hope someone out there has an idea for our lil girls.
