My daughter will soon be 3, and she has got to be the most stubborn toddler ever. She simply has her own mind about everything, and although she doesn't always get her way - we do have rules, and we do discipline her in accordance with them - she has definitely got our number when it comes to pottying. On day care days, she can stay dry all day from breakfast to bedtime. But when she is at home all day, she just does not have any interest in sticking to the same potty regimen as she follows at school. Further, she has only once (and this was last week) done her BM in the potty; she did this unprompted during a bath while I was talking on the phone nearby. I have tried putting her in cotton/vinyl panties during the day, and she doesn't care if she wets or dirties them. She'll sit in it if I let her, and she will change herself if I shut her in the bathroom. She used to get excited for wearing her cotton panties, but now she begs to be put in Pull-Ups. Any ideas? The goal is for her to be in cotton panties all day every day (Pull-Ups at night) before school starts back in January.
