Just wondering if anyone has any tips on how to toilet train a girl? I have four boys who have all been done by two. My daughter is well a truly ready, she's dry at night, she'll sit on the toilet, she knows when she's weed and she holds on for like four hours at a time. Please help! am stuck with how to get her to actually let go to go in the toilet!

What I've started with my daughter is starting with going every half hour for about a week or two then every hour, then every hour and a half, then two hours. I know this is working because we're up to every hour and a half and she's staying dry. But if your persistent and give her praise when she does go potty she will do better. Sitting on the potty can be a bit boring for little children I also have a basket of books by the potty and we read a book when we go sit on the potty and its a distraction sometimes and they will go in the potty and then notice and be excited. My daughter has done this many times. Hope this helps!!Good Luck!!!

you just have to keep letting her sit on it, when she finally does go in the potty, be sure to praise her or give her a small reward, once she sees that it's a good thing, she'll start to do it more, our little one will go to the potty (and has been since about 14 months) as long as she's naked from the waist down by herself, but the minute i put panties on her she thinks she can go in them lol sigh
