My 21month old holds her pee but then when she does pee she floods her diapers. (i use the target "up&up" brand) is there any other brand that would work better?? or should we start useing "pull ups". She is just barely starting to potty train also

Anisha, please don't shout, it's really hard to read in all caps.
You don't have to force your child to potty train if you don't want to but if she is holding it my might be time to start. Only you know your child and what she can do. Personally I like Pamper Cruisers. My 25 month old has been using the potty for a few months and has decided that he doesn't want to go in the potty anymore. It's a fun process. I found pull ups leak at night also, Luvs also leaked for us, pampers cruisers were the only ones we found that worked.
Good luck to you :)

i use BJ's diapers (berkley & jensen) and they are alot better than pampers, huggies or luvs which my 19 month old daughter pees through during the night.

i found that the target brand was the best in my opinion. like someone else said go up a size and see what happens. do not buy pullups because they are a waste of money and too expensive! if you want to start potty training buy underwear and put them on and then the diaper. when your daughter pees she will more than likely not like the feeling of the wet underwear and take off the diaper and underwear. when you see her do this put her on the potty and let her know thats where she should pee. also ask her if she has to pee every half hour and put her on the potty if she says yes or just have her try every hour or so. the underwear thing helped big time with my son!

I liked Luvs and if you are a member at BJ's Wholesale Club you can get them real cheap especially when they offer their $4-$5 coupons

Every child is different when it comes to potty training. Some children start a lot earlier and other children aren't ready as others. You know your child better than anyone. If you feel she can start potty training her, than do so. Pull-ups work well but the price can start adding up also. I used Luvs. They always worked great for my 3 and held just as well as the expensive brands.

When my son was a baby, all I used was Pampers Swaddlers. Nothing else. When he outgrew those I started using Luvs. He's now nearly 2 and I'm still using Luvs. I've been happy with them. Also, have you tried moving up a diaper size. I noticed that when my son peed through his diaper, if I moved up a diaper size it stopped.



My son is also kinda 'in the process' of potty training. When we're at home I'll put him in undies. If I put a pull up on him they look & feel like a diaper, so he pees in them without even thinking. If he has a slip up & pees in his undies, he'll take them off & ask for a diaper so he can just pee in that. Oh boy, what fun potty training is! :)) Good luck!



Oh yeah, and there is no SET age that you're SUPPOSED to potty train...My son peed on the potty for the first time at 18 months. Every once in a while he tells me he has to pee pee but still doesn't have it yet. The norm for potty training is 2 1/2 to 3. Don't stress about it. It is hard to potty train when both parents work and you can't work with your child all day. When she's ready, she'll let you know!

My cousin's daughter is 3 and has no interest what-so-ever in potty training and they've tried everything. A girl I work with, her 15-month old is already out of diapers. You don't HAVE to start potty training the second they turn 18-months, its just a resonable/good time to start. But, like everyone else said, if she's holding it in, sounds like she's ready to start.

And letting pee run down there leg and forcing them to use the potty when they're not ready? That's cruel.

Pampers always worked the best for us.Tristan would use the Bathroom at 18 Month at Home,but when we went out he still needed Diapers because he was to busy with other stuff.So I did let him go until he was ready.By then he was almost three.He had one Public Slip up and that was it.I don't believe in forcing them.She will let you know when she is ready,until then try the Potty and praise her when she does it.Other than that,Pampers is a good Choice.I think you should not feel bad for her not going to the Potty yet.She will get there,they all do just like us back then:-)

Thanks,

I understand, caps does mean shouting that's why your post seemed to come off a little harsh. No worries.

Sorry for the all caps, but I'm not shouting. I'm just sharing my experience. It only took 1 week with my oldest son who is now turning 6 in December and 1 month for my youngest son who will be 3 this month. It's fairly easy, they're going on their own. I'm just saying give it a try, if it doesn't work then try a different approach.

Oh and by the way Anisha with my oldest the putting him in underwear and letting it run down his leg worked so I thought training my youngest would be a breeze but guess what. He doesn't care that pee is running down his leg and will run around like that for awhile. Not every child is the same. We give suggestions but please don't tell some one else what their doing is wrong and to just ignore everyone but yourself. Some people wait until 3 (or latter) to potty train. No one goes to college in diapers.

ITS TIME TO POTTY TRAIN FORGET THE LUVS, GET HER TO THE TOILET. AT WHAT AGE ARE YOU GONNA START? POTTY TRAINING WILL SAVE YOU A LOT OF TIME AND MONEY. YOU USE LUVS BUT THEY STILL LEAK. ITS NOT THE DIAPER ITS TIME TO POTTY TRAIN. TRY IT FOR A WEEK AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

OK, HERE IS THE PROBLEM. FIRST YOU WAITED TOO LONG TO START POTTY TRAINING. 18MOS IS THE BEST TIME TO START. WHEN MY BOYS TURNED 18MOS I NO LONGER BOUGHT DIAPERS, I BOUGHT GERBER TRAINING PANTS AND WITH MY FIRST SON HE WAS TRAINED IN A WEEK AND FOR MY YOUNGEST IT TOOK A LITTLE LONGER BUT THEY GOT THE PICTURE. ONCE THE REALIZED THAT WHEN THEY URINATED IT RAN DOWN THEYRE LEGS OR THAT THE BED WAS WET, THEY STARTED TO GO TO THE POTTY. BUT FOR THAT FIRST WEEK YOU HAVE TO TRAIN HER. NO FLUIDS AFTER PM. DURING THE DAY HAVE HER GO TO THE BATHROOM EVERY 1 1/2-2 HOURS AND WAKE HE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT TO GO TO THE BATHROOM(THIS WAY SHE KNOWS YOU MEAN BUSINESS) SHE WILL FUSS AND COMPLAIN BUT AFTER A COUPLE OF DAYS SHE WILL STOP. POTTY TRAINING IS ONE OF THE EASIEST THINGS TO DO BUT YOU HAVE TO BE STERN AND NOT GIVE IN TO TEMPER TANTRUMS AND SCREAMING. GIVE IT A TRY AND SHOW HER THAT YOU MEAN BUSINESS. I HOPE THIS HELPS.
