I had that same problem when i started potty training my daughter at first she wouldn't go. What i did was when ever i went to the bathroom i would ask her to if wanted to pee or just sit on her potty so she can understand why the potty was there, at first she didn't want anything to do with it, eventually she got used to sitting on the potty (even if it is with a diaper) and as time went by she started wanting to take off the nappy and piee in the potty. You just need to give her time. I know some moms take their children every 45 min to potty train. You must just be strong and try keep going to be potty trained she will eventually start potty training. I never thought my daughter will start. Good luck!

At this stage I wouldn't worry about potty training her. Some children are ready now and others aren't. When I started training my daughter she refused to wee (or poo) if her nappy was off and she would hold on for hours until either she went to bed for a nap (in which case she would wee her nappy in bed) or until she couldn't hold on any more and then she would freak out and scream when she wee'd. After doing this for nearly a week I stopped training her and left her for a few months. When I started her again I put her straight on the big toilet (with a toddler toilet seat) and she went straight away and I haven't had a problem since. My friend had a similar issue to yours, her daughter would sit on the toilet for ages and wouldn't go but as soon as she got off she would go and wee on the floor. After trying to teach her for a couple of months (and cleaning up a lot of wee) she decided to stop for a few months and now all of the sudden Aleisha is toilet training really well (she is nearly 3 now).

Some signs they are ready for toilet training are:
- they have a dry nappy for extend periods of time;
- they show signs that they know they are weeing or pooing in their nappy.

Sorry this is so long :-). Hope it helps.
