Help! I'm going to work on January and I need a miracle. Lol. I would like to potty train my baby girl who is 28 months old in three weeks, is that possible? Unfortunately she isn't showing any signs that she is ready.

Does she wake up in the morning or from nap time dry? My boys never really showed signs they were ready but I was sick of diapers. :) When I noticed they'd wake up dry I figured it was time because obviously they had some bladder control. Whatever you do when you start DO NOT USE PULL-UPS. My kids treated them as diapers. Get cloth underpants with the plastic covers. My kids hated that wet feeling against their skin and my oldest was potty trained in 10 days once I stopped the pull-up and switched to cloth training pants at the advice of my friend. My boys are now 11 and 8. My youngest son was the "bear" I always say it was his last act of defiance that he was not going to be potty trained. Around his third birthday I called my MIL in tears and ready to pull my hair out because he wouldn't poo in the potty. He did everything else but wouldn't do that. She told me turn the heat up (It was December) and let him go naked. He won't like it and he'll use the potty. 3 days later done. Neither ever had an issue with nighttime accidents either. Hang in there! As I look back potty training was always one of the hardest tasks to accomplish!

Then you'd be better to wait until she was. Forcing her now can cause anxiety, and stress related potty issues.

Thanks, do you think there is anything I can do to encourage her to try or hasten this process?
