  • With my youngest I gave m&m's or jelly beans. With my oldest I tried these and it didn't work so I just started praising her getting more exited than she did she she loved that she didn't take long to catch on though only a month and then I had her fully potty trained at 19 months old

  • None. I encouraged and praised. It only took 4 days. Who had time or needed a reward?

  • I don't give rewards because once they have the potty training thing down they will be expecting rewards all the time.

  • None. Just praises and hugs!

  • I didn't use any to start with, but I ended up using stickers with my son. The stickers were really only a big deal for the first couple of weeks; it didn't result in him expecting rewards (other than praise and hugs) all the time.
