  • My oldest daughter was 2 1/2 when she was potty trained. She had a 6 month old sister. It didn't take as long for the second because she had a big sister to learn from. Good luck!

  • Sounds like she isn't ready...Wait and just keep the option available..Also try leaving her naked so that when she pees down her leg she understands whats going on...(most this only takes a couple times) When she pees down her leg tell her she peed and put her on the potty and tell her that is where she should pee....

  • She is WAY TOO YOUNG! Just wait until she is closer to 2 and 1/2. It will be easier. I promise. Most kids are not trained before 2.

  • You just have to wait until she is ready. My daughter has been going on the potty since 18 months but not consistantly. When she turned two I tried everything to get her to be out of diapers, but she physically was not ready. She would pee on the potty and then pee in her pants 10 minutes later. She could not control those muscles. I stopped trying and then one day she said I have to potty and now she is pretty much trained. I know you want her out of daipers but it's better to just wait, it'll be easier when she's ready. Good Luck.
