Potty training

Any suggestions on how to rush it? I know you really cant, but if she doesnt potty train soon she'll be stuck in panties with no diapers... any suggestions?

  • I don't know how to rush it, and i would rush try to push it on her to much because if you make it a bad experience it will be alot harder on both of you. The only tips I can give is be persistent. Ask if she has to use the potty frequently take her to it every 20-30 mins. and give her "treats" (we did tootsie rolls) every time she uses it.

  • Hey that's how my daughter learned, we just ran out of diapers and the store was out go figure. They learn, don't let them sit in it at all keep them dry and be prepared to do some extra laundry.

  • oh and a big helper is take her when you go, make sure she has her own potty and by going together will make her feel more like mommy. Live life by example.

  • Let her pick out her own big girl panties get them excited about it, Reward them for going in the potty. Make the biggest deal out of them going in the potty
