How is it going with the potty training? She is a doll, by the way! Just think, before you know it she will be all grown up. So, if it takes a while to get her trained like a big girl, so be it.

well my mother started putting my daughter on the potty at 9months just letting her get used to it...we'd tell her "pot pot...lets go pot pot" now shes 15months and shes been using the potty for about 5-6 months now. she doesnt like to poop in the diaper anymore so she'll go "i pot pot" and when she does go in her diaper which is rare she'll tell me "i pot pot"... at first we'd have to sit at the potty and she'd just go peepee. then finally she'd bend over and push..lol sometimes it'd take 10 -15min. so we sing and play and talk until shes does the doo..i just take her when she wakes up after she eats and randomly throughout the day depending on if shes gone poop already..and then at night! thats all folks :)

I only have experience with a girl. Wait until she goes through a nap without wetting, then all night. You have to treat kids as you would treat a dog with potty training. You should sit on the toliet and put her on her little potty. Do that every few hours, esp after drinking. Soon she'll get the picture.

I let my boy run around without a nappy and he want to the potty almost straight away, I keep it in the room where he can see it. I am having trouble getting from no nappy to pants though as he doesn't seem to be able to distinguish between the two.

I also let my daughter run around without a diaper. I also introduced her to "Elmo's Potty Time" and "Once Upon a Potty for little girls". Those are two videos that explains potty training in their terms. Also, let her go with you to the bathroom. Put the potty near the toilet and have her sit on hers while you're on yours. Be patient and she will do it in her own time. Don't rush and whenever she does make her deposit, reward her.

Keep 2 jars of treats in the restroom. I know it sounds gross, but so are poopy wet panties. Make these treats something the child likes but does not regularly get. One jar is for #1, the other is for #2. Take her to the potty every hour to hour and a half. Tell her that when she goes, she will get a treat. It can also be fun to read while she is sitting on the potty. This will distract her from trying to get up right away to go play. Give it a shot, it has worked on 4 kids so far.

We put our son in underwear for 1 weekend and loaded him up all day on water and juice, then asked him every 5 min's if he had to go to the bathroom. Finally by the end of the weekend he was so tired of peeing on himself and having us ask him if he had to pee he just went and pee pee'd in his potty. Poo poo came a few months later...good luck!

I have to agree with the other two ladies on here. But if you do have problems there is a book at Wal Mart that makes a flushing sound to have for the child to have in order to use as a book they can "READ" while on the potty it is what we use at our job to train kids that are being potty trained

Quoting Stephanie:

We let our son run around without a diaper when we started training. After LITERALLY one day he would go to the potty by himself. We also had it in the front room for easier access. It was the best tip we've ever got.



AMEN. Same method,same results.
