She waits to go until I put a diaper on her or sometimes she cant wait and just goes in her panties

Does she like to swim?? I know this sounds crazy, but mine loves to jump in the pool. After a frustrating week of potty training, I said "Listen.....when you poopy, it's going to sound just like when you jump in the pool" and we got very quiet and listened. PLOP! She laughed and thought that was the funniest sound ever!! "Listen, Mama!" But it worked. I hope you get through it soon!

Sounds funny but we had to use our imagination and I told my soon to be 4 yr old Daughter that her potty was hungry and she needed to feed it...She went from the "baby Potty" to the BIG GIRL POTTY!!!...now it's hard because she will only go in one certaint potty lol...the way I got my daughter to stop going in her pannyis is I made her empty the pannis and ALSO made her rainse them out...After 2 times doing this she stoped going in her undies Hope this helps or gives you some ideas

i was in dire straghts with my boy with potty training, no matter what i did the poop ended up on the window walls etc as he took his nappy off and decided to 'paint ' his room with it some one suggeted i put his potty outside his room and just pretend it wasnt there and if something was in it i wasnt to make a big deal at first, just pretend it was (and it is ) normal, then after a few times move it a little closer to the bathroom, i know it sounds not very nice but sometimes kids feel too much presure from both trying to perfom in the bathroom and the parent. it worked for my boy as after about 2 weeks (which i had been tld it would take) he was going in the bathroom. after about 2months he started wanting to go on the 'bigboy' seat and now there is no looking back. i must admit though when he was about 3months into it he kind of reverted as he was sick but he did it in the shower , i didn't say anything and just cleaned up with claener after as it was gone down the drain by this time!!! he was washed and dry and dressed and put hte tv on so as i could do this . it s a very mess progress with some children and i still think it is gross but no pressure is the key just let her go in her own time.

My son likes to hold it until he is in absolute pain and can't hold it anymore. Then he was going in his underwear or in his pull up. Can you tell when she needs to go? With my son it is very obvious when he has to go and he's holding it. I starting rushing him to the toilet and make him sit there until he goes. We sing songs and read books and I keep his knees bent and propped up on a stool. He gets a Hershey Kiss after he goes and we put a sticker on his potty training chart. We sit on the potty for as long as 20 minutes or more trying to go. We have to make several attempts at going before it actually happens. But, it's getting easier because he knows he gets a treat and we clap our hands and celebrate for going in the potty.
