  • I just started on my 27 month old. Go to babycenter and look up the 3 day potty training method. I was a little skeptical at first but we started it last Friday and we haven't had an accident since Sunday. But the first day is really hard. Good luck!!

  • i used jelly beans...he got some fore at first sitting there and being good and then he went pee i made a BIG deal and gave him more. i gave him one for pee and two for poop. he was trained at his own pace and was fully trained last may. we started in march or april i think.

  • I just started with my 2 yr old... we do chocolate kisses everytime she pees and a chunk of hercheys when she poops. However, it's been about 2.5 weeks and I'm cutting it back to one candy every 3-4 times she goes on the potty. Everytime she pees/poops, we high five, and get all excited. I call her grandparents and have her tell them she peed or pood. The first time I tried she was 18 mos and she peed on EVERYTHING! When she was 19 mos, she would sit on her potty for 20-30 mins EASY then get up and pee in front of it! Very aggrivating, but it sure does take time! We have a little potty downstairs and a potty seat upstairs (it fits on the potty and she has a stool). We also picked out underwear she wanted when she was 18 mos and she still likes them. We have books to read about the potty which seemed to help! GL!
