My daughter was PT in 2 weeks. The first week she didn't make it to the potty at all.. She just would pee all over herself. I was about to give up but decided to try just one more week. Thank God I did because that was the week she got sick and tired of feeling wet and dirty and stared using the potty. She was 24 months. Just keep at it.

I started potty training when my son was two and he absolutly was stubborn he showed his signs he wanted to start but was just so stubborn but now hes 3 and is fully potty trained and we took breaks all threw the year but now he is completly out of diapers and pull ups we have a accident over night every now and then but they are far and few between but once i took away the pull ups he finally wanted to go on the potty so it takes time and consistancy good luck i know how frustating it can be

If your child is showing signs that she wants to potty train then stick with it if she has no interest then wait a bit longer. My oldest son was 2 years 6 months and potty trained in two weeks, my middle son was 2 and he trained within a week, my daughter is 19 months and is showing signs now that she is getting ready to potty train. I will not start with her until she is about 2 though as I do not want her to revert back when older. I am just at the stage where I take her to the toilet with me and show her what goes on in there. Once I decide to train her I will go straight to the pants and will not use pull ups at all they just confuse a child. I never used pull ups with my boys and I never used a potty. They all have/had a seat that fits on the toilet with a step and I never had any accidents. Stick with it all of a sudden she will get the idea. Good Luck!

just relax... and don't stress out. she will feed on that and also get stressed. do it one day at a time. my daughter was potty trained in that same week. my son... well he is still working on it a year later. when she is ready, she will be ready.
