  • dont bother with pull ups!i think they are such a waste stright to big girl undies and let her sit when they get wet, this sounds cruel but they dont like that feeling and catch on, my dd isnt totally trained but i just started this and we've made more progress then prior attempts

  • she has panties and I have her use them but she wont go on her potty she just wets her panties. She screams her lung outs everytime I try to get her to sit in her potty.

  • Wait for a week when you can dedicate time to it and allow her to either go naked or with panties around the house all day. Take her to potty about every half hour. Limit outings and hope for the best. :)
