hi there,every child is different my son was nearly 3 wen he finally realised what the potty was for,he used to do number 2 in his pants in the corner of the room then come and tell me after,a reward chart could really help,if she does anything lots of praise and a sticker on the reward chart,explain what the chart is for,its also known that toddlers can get embarressed of going on the potty infront of people,the same as an adult would really,lol,good luck and keep me posted.x

I printed off a weekly calendar. It would have the day and then a long line beside it. Every time he went to the potty I would put a sticker on that days line. I did smile faces for pee and dinosaur for poop. You will have to find a sticker with something she likes. after each time he went I would give him a piece of candy,and at the end of the week if he had done good I would let him pick out a toy. Hope it helps

hi alicia my name is fiona

when i started my son which was about 2mts ago he would cry and shout so i stopped it until he was ready i would keep the potty in what ever room he was in just so he would get used to it eoin is nearly 3.

i would play a game with him just messing around everynow and than like putting his fav toy on the potty and saying oh yr such a good big teddy going on the potty etc...

then after a while eoin wanted to have a go just one go on the potty and i would give him a treat and took it from there one day at a time just going once and now he is going all the time well we still have accidents but thats to be expected but wer gettin there hope dis helps.
