my daughter is almost 3 and i'm just now getting her to use the potty. when she's in the house i leave her in a dress and panties and keep the potty close by (and the mop too. lol )I also showed her youtube videos of children using the potty. You can also try rewarding her if she goes to the potty, it didn't really work with my daughter because she just wanted the treat and wouldn't go potty, but every child is different. My daughter is now telling me she wan't to use the potty, but sometimes she still goes in the pull up. It's all about having patience, they go when they're ready.

She might not be ready for the potty yet. Is she showing signs of being ready, like knowing when she has done a wee or a poo? My son was near 2.5 years when he was ready and to help encourage it, he was allowed a jellybean from the jar when he did a wee (taking himself and not having to be reminded). The poo came a bit later when he got confident, but he was rewarded with 3 jellybeans - wow to him!! This really helped him, he soon forgot about the jellybeans each time going to the toilet as it became habit just to take himself. Good luck!
