Potty Training Dilemma!

We are on Day 4 of potty training my 2 1/2 year old. She does great with no underwear on. She goes to the potty every time she needs to go. No accidents! As soon as I put underwear on her, she pee's in them. Every single time! It's almost as if she thinks she's wearing a diaper. Do I abort the potty training mission? Is there a way to get past this? Any advice, ideas, or suggestions welcome!!

  • maybe tell her she's doing great, but "big" girls wear underwear and take them off to go potty?
    maybe show her that YOU wear them?
    *I dunno

  • Skip the underwear. If you're just around the house it doesn't matter.

  • She can be naked around the house and throw a diaper on if you go out. It is still early in the achievement at a time....;)

  • I would praise her for her achievements so far and leave off the underwear while you're around the house.

  • I would leave the underwear off for awhile until she realize they aren't diapers/pull-ups. When I potty trained my ds that was the only way he wouldn't wet his pants. He wore long t-shirts around the house.

  • I think she is doing too well to abort the mission haha. Keep at it, she will get it. Maybe she's just a little confused. Keep explaining, maybe get some potty book, which i swear by...
