My daughter is 2 1/2 and she has a little sister that will turn 1 in a couple days. She goes to the potty GREAT when we are at home and with nothing on her bottom- no pull ups, no panties, no bottoms at all. I ask her if she needs to go potty and we sit on the potty first no matter if she says yes or no, we try and then we put something on and the moment I put a pull up on her she goes to the bathroom in it. She doesn't even give me the chance to ask if she needs to go to the bathroom... it's instantaneous. Doesn't matter if it's poo-poo or pee-pee (cleaning poop out of cotton panties is so fun too). She was doing well for a week or two so we moved to the cotton training panties that are lined and padded. All of a sudden she started using the bathroom in those as well. Nothing has changed, by husband and I spend a lot of time with our kids. I have tried to explain to her it's time to be a big girl, mommy doesn't go potty in pull ups or diapers or her panties and I show her that her "big girl panties" feel just like mommy's. Nothing is working... I thought maybe it is just too soon for her but like I said, with nothing on she does great! I don't know what to do. I am loosing hope and getting frustrated! Please HELP!!!!
