Try pull ups at night and get some gorgeous special knickers for the day and start a reward chart for every day that she wears her big girls knickers!

Go to the in between stage and get her pull-ups to start getting used to the idea of underwear. The other thing is you could just take the nappies away all together during the cannot let her dictate what she will and will not wear at this age. Good luck.

There are some washable nappies that are just thicker knickers. It feels different than a knicker but almost as thick as a nappy. This helped my last daughter when she was 1. She potty trained herself but still wanted to wear the nappies. I bought her the washable knicker/nappies and after a few days and a big deal about throwing away the nappies she was fine. The washable nappies I am talking about are just thicker knickers really. They call them "trainers" here in the U.S. I hope this helps.
