Yep. Every child is different. My first two were great when naked and awake right from 18 months, but had day (only w/ pants on) and night accidents for YEARS. They weren't out of night time pull ups til 4.5 and still had wet beds (w/ decreasing frequency) for about 4 years... and daytime 'dampenings'... til about the same time.

My son, on the other hand, was dry 99% of the time through the night by 2 years old, potty trained himself in diapers, and only ever had a handful of daytime accidents and even fewer night time ones from 3ish on.

I would also plan in potty breaks into your day. She is still young and may have a hard time stopping what she is doing.

Nights are 100% normal... so keep her in the diaper/pull up and don't worry about it right now.

As for the day time... has she been checked out by the doctor to make sure nothing physical is going on? If so... just give it time. My daughters had accidents for YEARS. Make sure she knows to go and change her pants (and where you want her to put the wet ones) as soon as she has an accident. As long as she doesn't have a physical or mental/emotional delay... she'll get there.
