She is very interested in going to the bathroom. But everytime she wants to go is after she has already went in her diaper. She is 2 in a half and will be 3 yrs. old in June. She always wants her diaper changed as soon as she has went to the bathroom in her diaper. Any Tricks to starting her Potty Training. She I be putting her in Pull ups now??? Any Advise would help... Thank you!!!

My daughter tends to take a shower with me and since I usually go to the bathroom just after I than have her try to go which works pretty well. Now we are going to try a reward system where we are going to put a calender in the bathroom with stickers and every time she uses the potty she gets to put a sticker on that day.

hi ya. just let her run round with out a nappie in and put a potty in every room and let her if she needs a wee she just go on the potty and that she is a big girl now and there is no need for a nappie she will not do it straight away and wee on the floor but thats ok coz she will learn by the 3rd day ,maybe every by the 2nd just keep asking if she need to go and keep sitting her on it she will go in the end, my little girl will be 2 an half in junly and she is dry all day just has pull ups for bed. good luck hope this helped

I had the same thing with my 3 year old. I placed him in pull ups and had him in them for a month or so and then took him to buy his own "big boy" pants. He is now doing well. I made him a star chart, with pictures (smal kids can not read) of a toilette, wash basin, bath, broom, bath and flowers. When he goes in his potty or in the loo - he get a star and sticks it him self were it should be by identifying the picture. The same goes for brushinbg teeth, cleaning room and being a happy helper. His reward is if he has 7 star (week) he can decide if he wants to go shopping, go to a friend to play or do a family activity (go to he zoo). He enjoys this and gets very upset when I say that I am going to take a star away. He knows that if he makes a oops that he will not have his treat, and he tells you that "poop in pants no Bunny park". Let me know how it goes.
