I DON'T KNOW HOW TO BEGIN THE PROCESS AND I DON'T KNOW IF SHE IS TO YOUNG. I SHOW HER WHEN SHE POOPS WHERE THE POOP GOES LEAD HER TO THE TOILET SHE SAYS BRAVO AND FLUSHES THE TOILET. BUT I KNOW THERE IS MORE TO IT AND I THINK THIS IS GONNA BE A CHALLENGE FOR ME MORE THAN HER.

With my two oldest kids I potty trained them by putting them in big kid underwear during the day when I am home with them and taking them constantly to the toilet.. (yes they will pee themselves a few times, but they won't like being wet like that) I put one of the potty chairs in the living room so they could sit on it while watching a movie.. (and its right there at there convienience) my son was 2 when he was completely potty trained and my daughter was 2 1/2.. I started kinda early with them though... the hardest was night time... but you have to be on top of it with them if they see your not keeping on top of it they will give up.. But it doesn't happen in a month.. could take a few but don't give up..

Thank you ..... yeah she showed interest at 1st but then gave up .... I'm more worried about her teeth and showing her how to brush and how long than potty training =) but thank you imma have to try my best to stay on that

yeah! another mom who is not sure lol well my son jus turned 2 in october and im trying aswell the biggest thing is consistancy and staying on top of it. i have an 8month old too so i get distracted, but my friend told me she put her timer on every 20 mins and runs her daughter to the potty to pee or pooh and almost everytime she pees. my mom told me to put him on the potty every morning, 20 mins after eating breakfast, again after lunch after snack and after dinner, but my son doesnt really understand or sense when he is going to pee or pooh so i dont htink he is ready yet. usually a child will show interst in it. my step daughter got her daughter trained in 2wks she ran out of diapers so she started putting her in panties and she liked them so much that she didnt want to wear diapers so she caught on to the potty thing really fast just a few accidents so far. i think every child is differnt but we as parent have to be ready adn consistent aswell. i wish you luck, i have been putting sedar in underwear and when he is wet i tell him "ur wet" and i show him then i take him to the potty and i tell him to pee in the potty he is kinda getting it but i may have to wait till he is closer to three.
