  • Put her in panties. If she's that close to being potty trained, panties might be just what she needs to get over the last little bump.

  • I was going to say the same thing. My daughter is also almost potty trained and if she is wearing pullups and they get the slightest bit damp she takes them off.. and all of her other clothes haha. But if she is wearing panties she only takes them off when she needs to go or has an accident. And they will be more uncomfortable if they have an accident in panties and will want to get to that potty sooner!

  • My brother gave his girls 15 minutes of "nakie" time every night before bed. That way, they got to enjoy nakedness, and they knew during the day they had to be good and wait for nakie time. Might be worth a shot.

  • Stop with the pull ups and just do underwear. You may have some accidents but it sounds like she doesnt like being wet so should catch on quickly. Sounds like a good thing to me!

  • my oldest daughter went through a "naked phase" about that age. I just let her go naked, as long as we were home. My friends nicknamed her nakedbutt though, 'cause whenever anyone would stop by, she, of course, was naked from the waste down. I figured hey, if that's gonna make her happy, then what the heck, it's not hurting anything!

  • oh, and btw, it didn't last long. I think most toddlers do that so they have some sort of control or something. The more you fight with them to stay dressed, the more they're gonna want to be naked. Good luck!
