Been working on potty training my toddler for a while (she's 36 months) and initially she wasn't taking well to it.
Then we tried the sticker-on-a-chart tactic and she got really excited about it. (Every time she goes pee in the potty she gets 1 sticker, for poop she gets 2 - at 10 stickers she gets a small treat.) Suddenly she was peeing on the potty regularly, and almost never having an accident.
Unfortunately, now she's going ALL THE TIME. Like, every 20 minutes she goes pee and comes to tell me.
I'm starting to get the feeling that she's holding some on purpose so that she can get more stickers. She IS a pretty smart little kid. Is there any guideline on about how often it's normal for her to have to pee? Any suggestions what I should do?
