I'm about to lose my mind!!!! My daughter is just over two and we've been working on the potty training since before her birthday. Every half hour or so I'll take her to the bathroom and sometimes she goes and other times she doesn't. It never fails shortly after she comes out of the bathroom she'll pee or poop in her pull up. I've tried the reward system, which doesn't work all the time, buying big girl pants to wear over her pull up which worked for about a week. I'm tired of paying for pull ups and am trying to get her into big girl pants but I'm not getting anywhere. I wouldn't be getting so crazy about the whole thing but she does so well for everyone else. I need ideas please.

I learned that pull ups are a waste of time and money. It seemed to confuse all 3 of my little ones that are now 8, 5, and 3. My son was the hardest. I always used "big girl/bigboy" underwear/panties and would set a timer. When the timer went off...that meant they had to sit on the potty and at least try to go. A consistent schedule and routine of this quickly turned into them going on their own. They even like setting the timer for themselves. At the end of an "accident free" day, they got a treat. My son is still training and he wants a piece of gum everytime he goes..LOL That's what helped me! Hope it can be of some use to you. Good Luck!

thanks, i would do the reward after everytime and it became a think where she thought she got one even if she didn't go. I will try that right away.
