one thing my 2.5 yr old twin girls have taught me is patience. and during stressful times like now where i'm potty training. I imagine a life with out diapers anymore LOL. and that gives me more patience during times when i think i'm not getting any further in my goal. I agree with candace L on her post in here i think my twins feed off each other. and that helps me too. especially when i praise them for going in the potty i get help from the other twin and that makes it an even bigger deal LOL.

i'm a mother of 7, including 2 sets of twins, who are all potty trained now. it will happen eventually. i am not the type (and didn't have the time) to spend lots of time taking them to the bathroom regularly - that's training mom, not toddlers. wait until they are each ready - individually. it doesn't matter if grandma or the neighbor, etc. think that your children should be trained. you are doing what's best for your children, not everyone else, and if your children are not ready, don't sweat it.

I recently finished potty training my 3 year old twin girls. What helped me was; first I went out & let them choose their own "big girl" panties. Second, I have a three month old niece & the twins took all of their "baby" things (ie: diapers, onsies etc) over to her because they were no longer babies. I started to have them go potty every hour or so. The funny thing about twins, at least about mine, is that they seem to feed off each other. What I mean is that when one finally gets it the other will say, "Look, I'm a big girl, why aren't you a big girl. Sometimes that makes your job a bit easier because they are teaching each other to go in the big girl potty.

The last thing that I did was that my husband would take them, once potty trained, to go & get an ice cream. Time alone with Daddy was a pretty good incentive for my girls.

LOL becaus they are girls...everyone told me that girls would be easier to potty train and wasn't i blessed to have 2 girls! (well yeah on the second part anyway) Mine are divas. they look at me with hands on hips and flat out tell me "no potty!" When i ask if they want to be big girls they look at me like i'm a crack pot and laugh and say "oh, mommy...no way" They are 3 years and while i know they won't start kindergarten in diapers...i'm wondering...

I feel for you! i am actually contiplaiting the "train in a day/weekend" method...

When you come up with the solution please let me know. My girls are 25 months and have very little interest in potty training.
