Potty training and bottle breaking

Amanda Dawn - posted on 07/20/2016 ( 1 mom has responded )




My little girl is 2&1/2 yrs old, very stubborn. I've tried everything and I'm out of ideas. She is to old to still be in diapers and drinking out of a bottle. Can u please help me.

If you want her to stop drinking out of a bottle stop giving them to her. Unless she has a baby sibling to steal from it's as easy as throwing them all away and giving her no other options.

As far as potty training goes... 2.5 years old is not too old to be in diapers. If she is as stubborn as you say she is... trying to force her to use the toilet is likely to end up w/ both of you fighting and miserable. Encourage her to go and offer her assistance if she wants to try, but if she is resistant to the idea... drop it for a few weeks. Keep it casual like it doesn't matter if she uses the toilet or not. Let it be her decision (w/ a little encouragement and assistance as needed) and she will potty train w/out a battle when SHE is ready.
