My older daughter wants to be a baby so bad she doens't go in the potty yet. Before the baby came she went a pee once and poo once but now she is jelouse and wants to be the baby. She had given up her bottle and was learning to go potty. We do the potty dance and read books and give her fruit chews and we even have a baby alive we give water to and she pees in her own potty and we do this every hour as we use an egg timer to remind us to take her. We try very hard to make it an exciting happy experience for her but she still won't go. She is very sensitive and if we make her sit for to long she cries. I realy don't want to make her stay there and turn potty time into a negative experience as I already have a child with a bowel distorder stemming from fear of toilets. Any advice to make her think growing up is a good thing? PLEASE HELP!
