My 2-1/2 year old wears underwear and goes to the potty at home and can hold it for short trips to the store. But when she sleeps in the car or at home, she "goes." (So we put diapers on her right before she goes to bed and when we know we will be on the road for longer than an hour.) Also, we are planning to go on a 10-12 hour road trip next month and we don't want her to wear diapers by then. Please help! Thanks!

Constantly ask her if she needs to go potty. I would take her at every single rest area you come to. I would also bring something she really likes (M&M's maybe) and say "if you pee, I'll give you an M&M." Some frown on the bribery part, but I use whatever works and it works for us. We got THIS for DD and keep it in the back of my car for those moments when we can't get somewhere quick enough. She absolutely loves it!! We also will put a puppy training pad between her and the car seat on those long trips for just in case because we do not want to put her back in Pull-Ups when we leave the house.
