My 3 year old was completely potty trained, then went through a lot of changes and now is in pull ups full time. I have tried rewards and dicipline. What can I do now?

Please help me get my three year old back on the toilet again!

  • This is fairly common. My bff went through the same thing with her daughter. She just gave her a little time and she got back on track. I wouldn't overly worry. She knows what she is supposed to do. Eventually she'll get back to doing what she needs to do.

  • Drop the pullups and fully commit again. Stay home for a few days and get back on track that way.

  • same here so i stated sitting my phone to go off every half hour and made my daughter sit on the potty wiether or not she had to go. i make her try for at least two mins i know it seems like a long time but it is worth it. and also make her go before she go down for a nap and to bed and make to go when she wakes up in the morning and after a nap. just be persistent.
