potty tarining a 3 year old girl

It is hard! They go through those good days and bad days. It took 10 months for me to completely potty train my daughter, she is now 17 months and were working on night training (not as hard as I thought) but 2 dry nights later, I think we have done it. I was lucky and able to stay at home with mine. I kept being put down by people telling me she is too young. After everything I tried for months and months, it seems so easy when I look back, once I found what worked best (which was taking her in the bathroom with me and putting her on our potty and then every 30 minutes). Just remember to keep up with it!

Put her on the potty at regular intervals (every 30-45 minutes, before after naps, before after snacks/meals, whenever you have to go), buy cloth training pants and plastic pants (unless you dont mind cleaning up a few messes), once you get rid of the diapers dont bring them back, buy a potty she likes, have her pick out 'big girl undies', patience, persistence, praise, for poop training figure out her pattern (everyday, every other day...etc..) and put her on the potty 5-10 minutes before she has to go, keep her on the potty with books, toys, stickers, or something to distract her, When you go over to someone's home, make sure to put her on the potty and do the same thing you do at home, after a few weeks of constant putting her on the potty and her having accidents and going in the potty she will understand the concept. The more times she goes in the potty, the easier it will become. Good Luck!!
