How long did it take from the time you moved your daughter to "big girl" panties until she stayed dry and used the potty all day? I introduced my daughter to the potty chair at 18 months and she did really well with it at first (for the first 2 months) We made a "potty chart" and awarded her with stickers, which she absolutely loved...for a few months at least. Then she got strep throat and stopped wanting to use the potty while she was sick and never started wanting to again after she got better. She is now almost 2 and a half and has started being interested in training again, but this time I put her in regular panties and some plastic cover panties...so when she does pee her pants she really notices and has to get changed right away. This seems to be working really well. I was jw how long it usually takes for them to stay dry all day with no accidents. Also, what did you use for night time? Diapers, pull-ups, or nothing?

When my kids were ready there was no "training". It was one day diapers the next day they were always going in the potty.
I was at Target with my oldest and he wanted a Big Wheel. I was buying diapers. I told him if I didn't have to buy diapers I would have money for a Big Wheel. He never went in a diaper again. We went back and got the Big Wheel. Obviously he was phyically ready but not motivated.
