She holds on for hours and hasnt had an accident since i started training about 4months ago. She knows when she needs to go because she asks for a nappy. YES i have even tried bribes. We have a normal potty, sining potty and a fancy toilet seat and none of them appeal to her. I dont no what else to try. any ideas???

My 2.5 year old is the same, although he will pee in the potty, he asks for his pull ups when he needs to poop. Not sure why. He HAS pooped in the potty, but he only did it for a few days before he stopped. This is kind of how it went when we started, he'd pee in the potty for a couple weeks and then he'd just stop. So I'm hoping its the same kind of phase and he'll come around to it soon, as he did with peeing.

Them knowing when they need to go, even if they're not doing it in the potty, is still a huge step in the right direction. I try not to get frustrated with it, and let him work at his own pace.
