  • It's hard to potty train any baby I have a daughter shes three years and 4 months and she just now goes poop and pee on the potty and I brought her, her first potty and two years old she would sit on it but nothing would come out, If I were you I would buy her a potty and just start trainging her to go have her sit on it when you do on your own toilet. Honestly mine starting to go when she just had jumped out of the shower she was naked and she had to go and the potty was already there and all of a sudden she just went and since she loves going to laughs everytime she hears her pee come out, just relax dont pressure her to go she'll go when shes ready, but you have to coach her. Good luck..
