How can I potty train my daughter she just turned 3?

She sits on the potty but as soon as she feels the pee getting ready to come out she stands up and says "mommy put my diaper back on"

  • Or you could wait, let her explore the subject and when she's ready she'll learn.

    "Toilet Learning" has an interesting and horrifying history of how children have been potty trained throughtout western history, and compared to the more natural, laid back methods used throughout the world.

  • I am not "there" yet...but a few moms I know did this around their child's 2nd birthday...and it worked: It's still summer...just get rid of the diapers! Give her a weekend naked and show her the potty. If she grosses herself out, it might help! You have to deal with it ...and you might need to get the carpet cleaned..but it's worth it if it works.
    Good luck!
