I just went for it and put underware on my kids. I really don't see a point in using pull-ups because they feel like a diaper to kids. With my son, I tried right after he turned two and could tell he wasn't ready so I stopped for a while and then when he was about 2.5 yrs. old, he started acting ready so we put him in underware and he did great. Now my daughter was much easier. She turned two, we put underware on her and she did a wonderful job! I really believe just going for it all out is the best way...if they are really ready, you'll know!

First off its okay for them to have a good few accidents before there able to control what there doing.

Daytime.take the nappy of and put underwear on.Ask a few times while there playing away do the need to use the toilet and if the do get them to sit on the potty.Start with the day and get that done and then go to nights.Then start taking the pull up off and get them to pee before bed and you either wake or lift them to the toilet when your going to bed to pee again,also no drinks an hour to two before bed.I personally didnt reward with candy but i praised her and told her how good she was and clever followed by a lots of cuddles lol.Did the trick for her.



My now five year old was out of the nappies at 12 months during the day and nearly 3 at night due to me being lazy on the night time routine but when i put effort into it and was persistent in weeks she was out of them.The daytime was lead by her as she just started to take her own nappy off so i let her do her own thing.



At night there was never a dry night nappy the next morning and my daughter was relying on the nappy during the night and taking it off once up in the morning.Even once out of these nappies at night she still at age five is up twice a night to pee.So i am glad i didnt wait for a dry nappy as an indicator.I do believe children are clever and dont wake because they know, 'why should the' they have a nappy or pull up on.Many do rely on them as its clear the next morning its straight off .

This is gonna sound a little silly , but it worked for me... keep in mind your baby will potty train easier in the day hours as opposed to the night hours so goodnites, or pull-ups may still be required for periods of sleep... First place a small candy bowl in your refridgerator, and take the baby to the bathroom in 1 hr increments. Only give the candy when they do their business 1 for peepee 2 for poops... next lots of cheering and praise (make it a big deal). Don't get mad if there are accidents yelling makes it worse. Instead take them to the bathroom and sit them on the potty reinforcing the idea that this is where you go... it takes patience. Boys as a rule are harder to train than girls. To train at nite it is as simple as putting them on the potty when you go yourself (it may help if you pee first in front of them). It is not nasty, but a natrual thing so don't be embarressed kids often learn by what you show them potty training is no different... let me know if it works or if you have any other questions my e-mail is sunshinemcleoud@yahoo.com.

I have some experience in child psychology, and behaviors as well as adult psychology plus on the job training as a mother of 3... feel free to ask me anything you wish... BTW try and use sugar free candy so as not to cause hyperactivity lol... good luck.

I am so different to others I look for a dry night nappy as an indicator that they have a good bladder capacity. I then let the child go naked/ or in undies in the yard ( because nappies are so good that they don't let the child learn about toileting) when they teach themselves to listen to their bodies signals then I introduce the toilet. I never ask if they want to go to the toilet as this reduces their bladder and robs them of their bodies natural signals when they need to go, I have three children boys and girls all day and night nappy free before three but wouldn't have worried if it was later each to their own time table, relax ...love jane

I was lucky my daughter was 18 months old when I started potty training her, I first started a few hours in the evening after here nap time I noticed when she would pee at a certian time so I would get her on the toliet just before she would go, I had kept a potty in the room that she was in so she could see it, then a couple of days later I went full time no diapers when she was up and would put here on the toliet every 30 mins most times she would go, them I slowly worked it up to 35 mins then soo on.. then at nap time and bed time I would use diapers, but soon as she got up it was right to the toliet, She was doing both peeing and pooping in the toliet the only thing I had a hard time with was here learning to pull the pants up at first and she was really talking yet to tell me when she needed to go, but she had very few accidents because I would watch the clock all the time,

Every child is different. I learned that the hard way with my two girls. My oldest, Cedie, was really easy and we had her completed potty trained (not even accidents at night) before she was 2. Bryanna on the other hand was a totally different story. We did the same thing with her that we did with Cedie and it just made it harder. We started before we she was 2 and she wasn't potty trained until she was almost 4 and she still has accidents (she is almost 8). The one thing I learned is that they have to be ready. Don't push them because you will just get upset and they will get upset and it will just make things harder.

I am having such a hard time potty traning my youngest daughter! She is 3 and a half and she has started and stopped so many time it's made my head spin! I have never rushed any of my children to potty train before and the three oldest were done by the age of 3. Now we've already passed age 3, and 4 is looming and she still won't go! HELP!

#1 do not use pull ups!! Just get rid of diapers or pull ups except at night or naps. Do not go back to them once you start during daylight hours no matter how many accidents they have. It may take a day or two or three but they will get it, also put them on the potty every 15-20mins. You will need to set a timer. I promise it works. I have 3 children of my own and do daycare and have had over 25 kids.

My babes didnt like the toilet cause they were afraid they would fall in... pull ups worked for going out but at home we used "big girl" panties(i had all girls) I got a kids bathroom stool so they were able to position themselves like a big kid. And MOST important i got a potty insert that fit thier bottom- making the hole of the toilet seat and their fear of falling in a non- issue. Cheapest was around 6bucks and it saved soooo much time- Kids knew were it was placed when not in use in the bathroom- easily cleaned and portable. I reminded them often for a short time but they got the hang of it. For boys, i have seen cherios work wonders. -A few in the toilet and ask your toddler to pee on the cherio. Funny sounding but works. Be consistant in all you do and your toddler will catch on no problem.

Totally agree with Kyle... look for signs of readiness like dry diapers after naptime and/or bedtime, interest in the potty, etc. Pull-ups are just diapers and I found they were more of a crutch than anything for my older kids. They figured out very quickly that they could just pee in them when they were too busy to stop and use the potty. I will not be using them with my son when he is ready to train. If they are truly ready to be potty trained it should only take a matter of days, not weeks/months. Good luck!
