  • You might try playing games while she is on the potty. We have flash cards in the bathroom that my son loves to do. Sometimes I will read to him or play high five or any other silly game to occupy him. We started this when he turned one it was very time consuming but we had him potty trained before he turned 2. Good luck hope it may help you.

  • We skipped the pull-up things altogether and just put her in panty. Yes it was a very very WET 2 days, but by the 3rd day she realize if she doesn't go to the toilet she will wet all her nice clothes. Each time she starts to wet, we just sweep her up and place her on the seat.

  • My friend uses the timer method. She sets the timer for 15 mins, and every 15 mins puts the LO on the potty. They dont have to stay, but she says, "Go pee-pee." If they pee, say, "Good job peeing in the potty!" If they don't pee, say, "Good job sitting on the potty!!" She had her 2 yo son potty trained in a week. (When using this method, it is best to leave the LO naked lol taking off clothes every 15 mins is a hassle!!)
