is there anyone to watch the 4 month old for the weekend? or even just a couple days? that way you are able to be focused and not worried about the little one. Then you can make it fun. Lots of praise any time she sits on it or talks about it, even if she wont go. Don't use pull ups! Stay at home and go straight to panties, read books about it, stickers if she goes at all. Started all mine out going in every 30 min, stretching to an hour. try not to make a power struggle though, lots of positive games to play like pulling up and down pants the fastest (a potty skill she will need), flushing sprinkles down the potty if she sits for a whole song on the radio...make it fun. Good luck

when toddler wakes up,go. go every hr. even if he/she doesnt have to. also 4 month olds sleep a lot, so soon as baby is down,go. make it a ritual or game. (Potty Party)every time he/she has to go,he/she will remind u! especially when there are party treats waiting afterwards!
