  • Have you tried using rewards for sitting and going in the potty? Give her a sticker everytime she goes in the potty and after she gets a certain number of them she gets a bigger prize. Give her a favorite book or toy to look at when sitting on the potty and only give her that item when she sits. If she starts to have some success, then get rid of the pull-ups! The kids just view them as glorified diapers. Make sure that she can sit comfortably without the fear of falling off the toilet. Good Luck!

  • Get rid of the pullups and put her in underwear. Pull ups are just a glorified diaper. If it feels like a diaper and acts like a diaper, they are going to use it like it is a diaper. It took two days of peed in underwear before my daughter figured out the toilet. Use pull ups for bedtime only until she is completely night trained.
