My 3 year old granddaughter isn't interested in potty training! She'll go potty in the morning, but that's it. She does, however, love her my little ponies underwear. But when you start having her sit on the potty she'll grab a diaper! More than once she's wet her pants within minutes of getting up off the pot!

My daughter turned 2 in December and I have just started getting serious about potty training. I made it part of her routine in the morning; I get her up and put her right on the potty. I've been doing this for a few weeks now, it has helped a lot. Who doesn't have to go potty when they first wake up? I also do not use a potty chair; we have a seat that goes on the toilet and a stool to help her get on the toilet. This helps for clean up purposes and also it's fun to flush. My daughter flushes and says, "Bye-Bye Pee Pee" as she watches the TP go down. However, she actually does better when we are out; I think she likes going in other bathrooms. Getting her to tell me when we are at home is an issue. We were gone for about 6 hours today and she didn't wet once in her pull-up. The best thing is to be consistant and don't ask if she has to go, just put her up there every 15-20 minutes. Another issue I'm having is she will not poo poo in the toilet. I put her on the potty and she sits for 10-15 minutes and nothing; the minute I have that pull-up on her she poops. Frustrating, but I guess it's one battle at a time. This has been the most frustrating part of motherhood thus far.



Good Luck!

When we first started I stayed home with her for 3 day and took her to sit on the potty every 20 - 30 mins. We did candy, sticker, and silly songs and dances everytime she would go on the potty. This helped her to understand what was expected of her at potty time. Also, it helps in the begining to not ask if they want or need to go, but instead say its time to go sit on the potty. If you ask if they need to the answer is usually no, wheather they need to or not.

We put a CD player in the bathroom so our daughter could sing her favorite songs while sitting on the potty, its been one month and she is doing really good, even started wearing her big girl pants to daycare.

P.S. MAKE SURE THEY CAN COMUNICATE WITH YOU. WHEN YOUR DOING THE 2 MONTH PLAY TIME... LET THEM GET USED TO WEE WEE AND POO POO MAKE SURE THEY CAN SAY IT. AND MAKE SURE THERE READY!

OK MY TWO YEAR OLD IS POTTY TRAINED AND I DONE IT IN 5 DAYS... SOUNDS GOOD KEEP READING... 2 MONTHS BEFORE HAVE THE POTTY LET THEM PLAY WITH IT, PUT IT ON THERE HEAD ANYTHING TO GET THEM INTERESTED. LET THEM SIT DOWN ON IT ONCE HAD A BATH ETC... OVER THE FIRST 3 DAYS YOU HAVE TO STAY IN, SO KEEP THEM HAPPY WITH LOTS OF TOYS. THEN DAY 1 AND 2 LET THEM RUN AROUND NAKED MAKE SURE YOU DON'T HAVE INTRUPTIONS... THERE GOING TO MAKE MISTAKES BUT READY OVER DO IT WHEN THEY 'GO WEE WEE IN THE POTTY'. WHEN THEY DO IT ON THE FLOOR DON'T SAY ANYTHING AND JUST CLEAR IT UP. DAY 3 PUT PANTS ON THEM THIS WILL GO BACKWARDS... THEY THEN HAVE TO UNDERSTAND WHEN THEY NEED TO GO... KEEP POSITIVE.DAY 4.. IF YOUR FEELING BRAVE THEN GO OUT... NO NAPPIES. SMALL WALK NOT FAR. IF THEY COME HOME DRY GIVE THEM LOTS OF PRAISE. DAY 5 THEY SHOULD START GETTING THE IDEA. NIGHT TIME WILL JUST COME NATURALLY. GOOD LUCK

btw, i don't know if that's the best tip, but it seemed like an appropriate tip for where you're at.

keep trying, be patient, firm, and consistent...as with the rest of parenting. :oP
the moment your child sees you let up, she'll take advantage of it. don't be mean or pushy, but firmly and lovingly have her sit a couple times a day. if that is too stressful, do it once a day at the same time each day. make it part of her routine. when there is less resistance, add another sitting, etc. when it seems like she'll usually go when you sit her down, then start the full-time potty training with timed intervals.

our son used the potty as a hat for months before we started doing full-time potty training. we spent many months building up the idea of going potty as routine.
