I am also training my boy! i am just starting, so i put a potty chair available for him, and started playing games witht the potty, and also started reading him stories about the potty...by the way, i found a great app called potty training learning with the animals...make a game with all his preferred toys.

How old is she? I have three children also. The two oldest, I started potty training around 22 months. My oldest (now 5) hasn't had an accident since his 2nd birthday (day or night). My little girl (now 3 1/2) potty trained easily during the day, but slept heavy at night, so I had to wake her up to go potty. My youngest is 1 1/2 and I plan to pull the diapers once again at 22 months. I introduce the potty chair to them as soon as they show interest in it. They sit on theirs while I sit on mine. I give them a book, or I sit next to them and tell them how proud I am of them. I let them take as long as they need. I try not to get impatient with them or it will discourage them. I pull the diapers at 22 months during the day. It takes usually one week of accidents and then it's done. Don't ever yell or get mad at them, always encourage and praise them. If they potty their pants, so "it's okay, we'll get some dry clothes and try again. Try to remember to tell me when you need to go potty so your "dora panties or Spider man underoos don't get wet." The biggest thing is BE ENCOURAGEING and NEVER EVER GET MAD at them.

i put my daughter on her potty chair for a few minutes every 2 hours or so and had her wear the thicker underwear...she hated peeing herself and quickly learned to go on the potty...she's never wet the bed or pooed herself either!

First off make sure SHE is ready! My first one was a breeze. I put her in panties and took her potty every 20 minutes and took her in with me when I went (Had a little potty chair for her). I used a sticker chart and she got to pick out 1 sticker for going pee and 2 for going poop. She LOVED stickers! She had to continue to wear pull-ups at night til she was 4 b/c she had a medical issue. She was day trained in a week.

There is no "RIGHT" way to potty train. The most important thing is whatever you do - DO IT CONSISTENTLY!!!!! All the time as much as possible. Say the same thing, use the same reward, incentive if you have one. Make it as routine as bed time, meals, baths, day care etc. A lot of people say " I just don't get it! They always go at (insert child care/preschool.) Why not at home? " Consistency is the key. You know your baby best, Hands Down. Choose a potty routine that fits her naturally and commit to it. It is hard work for you both. Stay Calm, Happy, and Upbeat. It is so frustrating at times, like every other parenting role. Success is sooooo awesome for both of you. Good Luck!

Quoting Dana:

When my daughter were potty training I let them run around the house in just panties and kept an eye on them. I went to the bathroom often and everytime I would go (even if I didn't have to) we would each sit down on our potties and wait for a few minutes until we went.

With my oldest, (after doing it for a week or two) if we were out for a quick trip to town, we would use rubber britches over the panties.

When we first started we did wear panties over the diaper for a week or so, so that my girls would know what they were there for.



This is exactly what I did with both my girls and it was the most successful way for us to get them potty trained... good luck!!!

My advise is this. My oldest daughter was very hard headed. She didn't want to be potty trained cause she wanted to wear her pull-ups.. Well with two kids in pull-ups it was getting pretty expensive. So I told her, "I am not buying any more pullups for you." Your a big girl now. We went to Walmart, and I let her pick out her own panties. The next day when she woke up. She went right into underwear. We had about a week worth of accidents. (I think she was trying to see if I would give in or not) But I stuck to not buying pull-ups. And thankfully we have been potty trained for over 6 months. No accidents during the day or night.

i also have 3 girls and im working on potty training my youngest now. i usually just let her sit in the bathroom with me, or go watch her sisters go. since i have been doing that she has gotten on the potty twice, she stayed there until she went. just give her that praise and encouragement on going and she will.

also let her see you going i know it sounds wrong but it'll help her realise that if mummy does it its ok for me to do it. a way to discribe this is monkey see monkey do what i mean is that when our children see or hear us doing things theydo it to because they think its ok because mummy and or daddy do it but just try it and see how you go

Who potty trained your first two? You could try just taking her to the bathroom every half hour and setting her on the toilet. If she goes make a big deal about it! If not oh well! Accidents will happen and that's ok! Good luck:o)

the best advice i can give you is keep asking her if she needs to do wee and if she says yes take her to the toilet and sit her on it if she doesn't don't panic she will get used to telling you she needs to go BUT when she does do wee tell her she's a good girl congratulate her let her know she did the right thing k also if you don't already have a toddler potty step ladder get one and teach her that she need's to sit on the lil seat to do wee
