  • We just went to underwear & did not go back to diapers/pull-ups except at night but he was staying dry all night anyway. #1 was easy but #2 was harder; took a bit longer. Very messy but with patience & understanding he got it. It helped to stay home for a few days & get him in a routine. I now have my 2nd who is 20 months old to try but he is being more stubborn! Good luck!

  • #1 Key is Consistancy!
    #2 Get excited when she does her buisness!
    #3 Reward her accordingly (depending on how you do rewards ((i.e. praise, stickers, small toy)) and just drag out how good she is doing)
    #4 CONSISTANCY!!!!

  • my daughter is 31 months and we've potty trained so many times i've lost count. But finally when the ice storm hit and we had to stay at my mom's. Madyson (my DD) would follow my mom to the bathroom every time my mom walked down the hall and my DD has been peein in the potty since then. We do have a few accidents every day but she pees in the potty more then the accidents. She's been potty training for 8 days now.
