Potty training. Late.

So my daughter is 2 and still haven't gotten this down pat yet. All she does is play w the potty and the toilet. She won't go on the potty at all. Is she not ready yet? Any tips? (I'd rather not reward her with food.)

  • She is not late. Wait a few months. I waited until my kids turned 3. They were completely trained in days.

  • But when you are really ready to train her, take the diapers away completely and never go back. Except at night. Go right to undies. Take her every 1/2 hour or so to start. She'll feel when to go. Wait until you can spend at least 3 days at home without going out at all.

  • It is not late. Both my girls did not till after they were3 yrs. She does not sound ready. I would wait a few months and try again. Keep talking about the potty in a good way. Have her watch you go and tell her what you are doing. So she starts to understands it.

  • My son is 2 and we haven't attempted potty training yet. He's not really talking yet, and we decided to wait a bit longer to save both of us from the frustration!

  • She is not late...the average age of potty training for girls is 36 months. My son potty trained himself at 3 years. He had it down within days.
