Potty training help!

Samantha - posted on 03/01/2010 ( 4 moms have responded )




My daughter turned two in November of 2009. She has been potty training for a month. She knows when she has to go and gets excited when she goes in the toliet and calls herself a big girl. Her problem is she gets easily distracted and will not stop and go even when i try to coax her and ends up peeing on herself minutes later. If any one has any advise on some training tequniques i would very much appreciate it.

I have three girls and a boy, it is my exsperience that girls r much harder to train than boys! but you r on the right track. She is showing intrest!!!! yea!!! Now remember she has a little bladder so she WILL need to go often. no matter what SHE sais. Try this: for one week, take her to the potty every half hour. even if she cant or wont ''make''. give her an animal cracker for ''trying''. and a reeses pieces if she ''makes''!!!! if yopu find that she is going every other time then next week take her every hour on the hour (btter for you to remember when she went last). The treats that u decide to use in the potty training, DO NOT use for trips in car or at g-mas house ( unless for potty) these are jst two treats designed for the trick! now it takes 30 days to make or break a habit good or bad. kids naturally have short attention spans, so give it 30 days doing this. After a short while she will associate the treat reward with going potty. so pick a treat that she will eat, but reward Must be better if she goes!!! thats why i suggest animal crackers vs reeses! but you know your'e child better. lol! you may still have to put potty pants on her at night, but take it off first thing in the a.m. and show her potty! I'm sure this will help you. Good luck, and further assistance, don' t hessitate to call on me!

what does she do after she wets herself? does she react and get upset, or does she continue to play like it doesn't bother her?if it doesn't really bother her, she may not be fully ready. if she doesn't like to be wet then a potty rutine may make a big differnce, also i found a sticker chart very helpful

Make it a routine, even if it means you can't go anywhere for a bit. Make her go every hour and she will realize she has to go. My daughter is two as well. I have the same problem. I can't ask if she has to go, I have to make her sit. Hope that helps.
