Hi my son is 21months old and my mom told me I should have started pottytraining him the summer that just passed he was 18months old, of course he didn't want to sit on the potty,he tells me when he has done sth but after he has done it.And I've heard that girls are easier than boys.Don't worry I think she'll surprise you and ask to go to her potty on her own, just don't push her. I hope everything will go well for you!!

I don't have too many suggestions. I started with my daughter when she was 2 1/2 years old. We took a break when I was experiencing morning sickness for a couple months before she turned three. Then, we started up again after her 3rd birthday. Finally, she potty trained at 3 years 4 months - about a month before my 3rd child was born. I was so happy to not have 3 children under 4-years old in diapers. All of a sudden, after I'd almost given up she started saying, "I need to go to the potty," during the day & at night. One thing I did for a couple days was put her in underwear, and if she went potty in the underwear, she didn't get to wear underwear the rest of the day... that helped.

I once read the saying, "All children will potty train in one day, you just need to choose the right day." I think that is about how it was for my daughter... I was choosing MANY, MANY wrong days. BTW, there is a potty training group on circle of moms... just search it. There may be more suggestions in that group.
