My 2 1/2 year old started telling us everytime she wet her diaper. So we are working on it now. Your daughter might still be a bit young. But just start taking her with you when you go and let her sit on her potty. Then just go from there. It's not much info but maybe it helped.

I've been told when they're ready, but my son is two and a half and i'm tired of waiting for him to be ready!

My daughter told me when she wanted to go to the toilet. Never forced her or tried to put her on. Sher pretty much told me when she was ready :) Am sure your girl will do the same.

I started to train my daughter after she turned two, but then stopped because I had another baby and she started to regress. We tried everything, stickers, candy, rewards, but one day she just did it, all on her own. We've only had one accident. It helped that she was hanging around older kids who didn't need diapers, and that was a lot of motivation that she needed. The best advice I got was just wait until she can pull her pants off by herself, that way she's not dependant and worried about if she can hold it while you help her.
She's been potty trained for about a month now, and the only time we use diapers or pull ups is at night. We've done road trips, and never stopped going out. She'll be 3 next month. Don't feel pressure from other moms. Your daughter will do it when she's ready. Good luck!

I found that just letting my son in the bathroom and watching what the adults were doing was helpful. he eventually wanted to go on his own. I never pushed him to do anything. i would try now and just ask her if she wants to go on the potty and if she does great but I wouldnt push it yet. She still is young. There are many stories about when were why and how but it all comes down to what works for you and your daughter .
