  • Take her on a "girls date"....let her pick lunch, have her nails done and let her pick out her own panties...then maybe you pick out some too...this might give her the sense that panties are special and she may not want to pee in them...just an idea.

  • Stop putting diapers/pull-ups on her!!! My dd wanted her ears pierced, so I told her to go potty on the toilet like a big girl and she could have earrings. She was day and night, poop and pee trained in 2 days. She has never had an accident!

  • I agree with the person above me, dont put on diapers or pull ups. Once she keeps peeing in her undies she may not like the feeling of being wet. I also could not afford to keep buying pull ups, so I went cold turkey!! I had to deal with the accidents, but now my 2 yr old has VERY FEW accidents. She can go days without having one!! She has been excellent!
