Get the book, 'How to potty train in less than a day' Great stuff. My daughter had it down after the first day and has only wet the bed 4 times since then and I potty trained her a year ago. It's such a great feeling!

my daughter was soo stubborn! She would pee in the potty no problem (after I let her wet herself). but she refused to go poop in the potty! We started training her last summer and it took her till about February before she starting going ALL the time! It was so frustrating...I tried everything, what finally broke her is that she really wanted to go to dayschool and I told her she couldn't go until she started pooping in the potty. Just find something that works and stick with it, she WILL eventually get it. Good luck!

Well, I have twins boys and they are 2 1/2 yrs old. I have one and he has been fully potty trained since may, it took about it a week. But that is mainly because he was ready.

Suggestions for potty training is you can try the letting them wet themselves in underwear and see how it feels to be wet, but I found with my other twin that he didn't care if he peed or pooped in his underwear and would run around like that. Usually at this stage they can hold their pee for quite a while, but try putting them on between 30-60 minutes on the potty, watch for signs like if they are pulling at their croch area or anything that is sometimes a sign that they need to pee or they just did. There are little signs of bathroom using. I never used those, now I do since he is potty trained. Or try putting cheerios or a couple fruit loops in the potty and say pee on them Gabriel loved it. If I didn't do that life would of sucked because he refused to do so. Another thing is, is your daughter may not be ready. A sign that she is ready that when she goes potty in her diaper she will let you know, or if she poops she hides. Jake twin b will do that. He is just starting potty training. Good luck!! At first there are tons of accidents unfortunately and eventually they become less.

Honestly, we just put out 2year old in panties and let her wet herself. It only lasted a few time and she started telling us when she had to go. But you also have to ask about every hour if she has to go. We are going on our first month with only about a handful of oop's.
