I use stickers as encouragement and praise her when she goes. You might switch to pull-ups and make sure you are showing her that you go potty too. We have everyone that is in our house announce to her when they go to use the potty which is usually just me and the hubby, but we even have friends and family do it when they come over.

To get Alice (2 1/2) accustomed to the potty, I'd sit on there first and sit her in front of me. Sounds gross, but we'd have a pee-pee party! Now she'll sit on the potty and go whenever I ask her. Of course her fav place to poo poo is still out of reach under the kitchen table.

ia have just started training my 3 year old 5 days ago and she is already using the potty more often than not, and will ask for it. i used the potty training in one week method, which involves putting your child on the potty every 15 mins for the first day for 5-10 minutes at a time, then allowing your child to take more responsibilty for using the potty, just reminding them once in a while if they seem caught up with what they are doing. also not allowing nappies during the day, only at bedtime. can be messy tho for the first few days when your child has accidents
