hi there, i left the potty in our front room (as we have laminate flooring) and let her be naked, i had a dolly with a potty n shown her what baby does on there, i also would take my daughter and potty with me when i went to the loo n say mommy is going to have a wee wee. do you want a wee wee on your potty? eventually she sat there n used it, she has been ever since.



  however my friends little one didnt like the potty and found using thetoilet seats you can get better hope ive helped and good luckx

Quoting Lyn:

My 2 and 3 month old is potty trained with the help of M&M's!!!! She wore pull ups, and she told me when she had to go we ran really fast to potty, I just kept telling her that when she goes number 1 on potty she got 1 M&M and 2 for number 2. When she did not make it I just told her that s ok next time we will try to make it there. Just be patient and talk your little one through. Praise praise, praise. We did in 5 months total. Very very proud of her.



What is the M & M plan?

i also would like to add.. to start off from the beginning i had placed the potty in my living room... it still remains in that area to this day, but she goes on the big toilet now everywhere else, and occasionally on ours, but ours is very high for her yet.

I do not have advice other than an explanation of my daughter who is now 2 1/2 and fully trained. my daughter at 1 1/2 decided she wanted to go on the potty, and did so. A week later she would scream at the thought of it, so i decided to leave her alone with it as she was only a 1 1/2. Then a month and a little bit after her 2nd birthday, she decided she wanted to try it again, and she did. So i would let her wear her diaper still but morning, noon, and before bedtime, i would take it off and let her have "potty-time" she rarely went on it at that time. A week later she started going occasionally, and eventually she warmed up to it and would consistently go on the potty. I did not use pull-ups, as she new she could go in them, she out smarted me with them. But i did let her wear them at night for a few weeks, until she learned a routine, at about 26 months of age she was fully trained. I dont have advice accept, praise, and a treat because they will try to go if they know they get a reward. Other than that my daughter is very strong-willed, and has done alot on her own time. But if your child is still under the age of 3, there really should be no rush. It will come in good time.

For my son, I made a chart. one section for poop and another one for pee. He got a sticker for pee and 2 for poop. for some reason he loved being able to put the stickers on himself so this worked. We also gave him m&ms for poop because that was the hard one to train him to do. I basically stayed home for a week and put him in underwear and he went to the bathroom like 15 times a day!! A lot of work, but it worked.

I read the book Toilet Training in a Day. Totally worked for my daughter, 1 day. Tried it 5 times with my son (they are twins) and never worked. But it was only one day and it worked for her. I say it is definitely worth a try.

Hi my daughter let me know when she was ready to use the potty and pretty much did everything herself, she was 3 when she was ready....had to use pull ups at bed time for a couple months but after that she was good.

I think if the child is ready go for it. My DD2 shows signs but i'm too lazy to start =(. But once her nappies run out which will def be by tomorrow i am going cold turkey (except for nights). Might have to try the M&Ms idea =)

Hey there Tamara, I got my little guy Elmo's potty time movie. It really helped, my girlfriend also used it for her little boy and it helped her too. Good luck!

In my experience it is best to let your child decide when they no longer wish to wear diapers. It may be a long road, but take a look at grammer school children...they don't wear diapers! It's also a good idea to bring her w/ you when you go to the bathroom. This way you are modeling the task.

My daughter was a piece of cake when she was 4.  I waited until she showed me she was ready, she did the rest.  She wre pullups to bed for a few months and then we probably had a week of bedwetting and that stopped too.  Good Luck
