My daughter will be three in december. She knows that she needs to "go" on the potty. She will even be consitant for a few days in a row. But she seems to regress frequently. The biggest problem is she knows that she is not aloud to wet her pants, so she will take them off and go on the floor. She will do this even after (and i mean within minutes) she has a "big potty". Whether it is number one or number two, she seems to be able to squeeze out enough to make a mess. We take her frequently and use the reward system, but it doesn't make much difference. We've been at this actively for almost 8 months, and yet we are not seeing the progress that should be expected. At the end of our ropes....and budget on laudry degerent and carpet cleaner.....please help put some insight on why she is having problems. Preschool is in two months.....I want her ready.Answer Question
It's not about what you want, it's about her. Sounds like you rushed her and she wasn't ready. Now you are "paying" for it. Since she knows she isn't "allowed" to mess her pant this is a 2 year olds way of dealing with it. We used pull-ups for my daughter and avoided this whole mess. SWe called them "potty training pants" vs diapers. She went to preschool in her pull-up and within month was in undies after seeing how the other kids did it. Good luck!!
