How do I get my daughter to stop peeing herself?

She pees every time I put her on the potty, and then pees again 20 minutes later in her pull-ups. We have been potty training for 8 months now, and I am really frustrated.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

I middle girl was the same. She knows its ok to pee in the pull-up. When i started just putting undies on her she would go to the potty more but she still wet her self. I never got mad cuz i know it going to happend, after a while she will hate the feeling of being wet/dirty. Just dont push it so much cuz then its going to make it harder. Also praise her ( jump up and dow and do a potty dance) that what i did or if the whole family was home we had everyone come to the bathroom to praise her up and down.

yes, have her wear big girl undies in the house, and if u have to make a trip to the store then use the pull ups just as a back up. Tell her the babies need diapers.... and she is a big girl. If she pees or poops in big girl panties, its usually a one time horrifing event lol. Good luck. Be firm, and ask her often (every 15 mins) if she needs to go. Good Luck!

* and lots of praise when she uses the potty!

maybe if you try to get her to wear a pair of undies or trousers rather than a pull-up? yes you may have some accidents, a little more cleaning up etc but you will find especially in girls, they don't like feeling wet or their clothes being wet/dirty...and they will also learn that the pull-up/nappy isnt there to rely on.

i had similar issues and started eliminating nappys altogether and although i spent a fair bit more time cleaning up accidents in the beginning, it paid off in the end and i now have a fully toilet trained toddler :)

good luck!
