My daughter is turning 3 on Feb 8. She will sit on the potty (little potty chair or regular toilet) for as long as we will let her, but she will not go potty! She even says she needs to go potty, and when she is "done" she declares she went potty even though she did not. We have tried a rewards system, but she never gets the reward because she never goes potty for us! She will go potty when there are other kids around, like at church nursery, for the babysitter (when there are other kids with her), and at her Kid's Day Inn program. But never for me or her dad! She will start preschool in Sept and has to be completely potty trained by then. I'm thinking of just putting her in regular panties and letting her pee on herself to see if that turns a light bulb on! She is a very smart girl otherwise, no developmental delays of any kind. The only change in the family is we are expecting a new baby any day, so I have decided to lay off the potty training until the baby comes and my daughter has had some time to adjust. But I need your suggestions for when it's time to start trying again! Help!
