  • Some kids prefer a seat on the big potty as opposed to a small potty. Are you having her wear big girl pants?

  • She wears PULL-UPS

  • You have to go straight to undies. They know when they have pull-ups on and will take advantage. My son has been peeing in the potty for almost 2 years, but WILL NOT poop in the potty. We were putting Pull-Ups on him till he pooped, but then he started regressing and peeing in his pants again. Let her run around in big girl pants outside and hopefully she will not like the feeling of getting wet. You should start by putting her on the potty every 15minutes and get REALLY excited when she does even the littlest amount in the potty. Do you have a reward system set up yet?

  • She might not be ready. When i potty trained my daughter, the most successful thing i did was let her run around the house with a naked bottom. We had a few accidents, but that's all it took... because she did NOT like the feeling of pee running down her leg. LOL. Even after she got the hang of going in the potty i left her bottom naked for a few weeks before putting panties on her.

    Another great tip... for night time, i would put her panties on and then put a pull up on OVER her panties. That worked really well, and after only 3 or 4 nights she was completely 100% night potty trained!

  • There are cute books for kids all about learning to use the potty too.

  • weather right
    let her run arounf back yard with nothing but a T shirt
    i did the other week and she peed the next day in the potty
    of course she has not done since
    but i am still pleased with what she has done so far
    she will get there, just a lot later than most kids
    my daughter is three on tuesday, she has some delays, so i have to remember not to compare
    some days hard to see kids younger than her talking, but some kids are worsr off, so I try to stay positive

    hope you have a yard to let her run around naked in, i did late afternoon when heat has died down
