  • She's probably not thoroughly ready to get into the groove of it. You can try washable undies. Gerber makes them.

  • She's too young. Dont push it or you may end up in a battle when she really is ready. Some kids arent ready to even try till they are two. At 15 mo a child is not physically ready anyhow.

  • She's pretty young. What do you mean when you say she doesn't want her diaper changed? Do you mean she wiggles and tries to get away? Because that is perfectly normal behaviour for a child that age, there's so much they want to be doing that having to stay still for a change is hard for them. Or do you mean that she doesn't really care that she's wet or dirty and isn't coming to you wanting to be changed? Because that probably won't change if you put her in undies. If she doesn't care about being wet or dirty she's not ready for potty training.

  • No, she is just following what your telling her to do right now with no real idea of what she is doing. Wait until she is 2 1/2 and she will train fairly quickly then.

  • sheis probably not ready daughter is 22 mo and does the same thing!! she is just more interested in somthing else. wait a little longer it will be easier. if you start too soon it will onlybe frustrating for both of you.
