i have a 17 month old daughter. She is showing definate signs of potty training. Alot of moms have told me to put her in panties during the day so she understands when she pees her pants, and will want to go to the potty. I have bough pullups for night time, but have just been putting her in diapers at naptime and bedtime until i finsih up her few diapers that she has.
She has peed in the potty twice yesterday and once today. I feel like its just kind of hit and miss and that she isnt totally understanding what she is supposed to do. I dont know if its just "LUCK" having her pee in the potty when she does. Sometimes we will take her to the potty and within like 2 mins afterwards she has a accident.
I am taking her to the potty every 10 minuites, and she is "USUALLY" really good about doing it. I have a timer set on my ipad and as soon as she hears it she starts heading to the bathroom, so she does understand that.
Anyone have any advice for me. I know its only day 2 and she is still young, but just wondering if all this is basically normal for her progress> How long did it usually take your children when they were training (at the age my daughter is) to understand the concept.
Thanks in advance!
