I started potty training my daughter when she was 22 months old. I watched a couple of my friends use the 3 day potty training guide with great results, so we decided to use that too. We were not so lucky. We are now going on 4 months of trying to get her to tell us when she has to go and frustration is really starting to sink in. She will pee on the potty as long as I take her, but if she has to go she will just go in her panties. And she will poop on the potty a little bit but save most of it for when she is supposed to be napping (I take her just before her nap as I know that that is her usual time). It has become a huge power struggle and I hate being frustrated with her. So far we have kept it a happy experience but I am on the verge of a meltdown. I am thinking of just taking a break and that with me not bugging her about it she might just do it herself. But on the other hand I am scared it will ruin all of the progress we have made!! Help!!
