For my son, I waited until we had an entire week and took all of our diapers upstairs so they would be more difficult for me to get to. I didn't get rid of them, so we would still have them at night, but had to make them less accessible so I wouldn't give in :) I put him in underwear and told him that was it, he had to go potty on the toilet or his potty seat. I made a chart with pictures of a toilet, wiping and washing hands. He got to put a sticker next to each, each time he went and then I made a prize chart. Each day he got all his stickers, he got a prize chart sticker and if he earned all those for the week, he got his prize.
He had accidents for sure and didn't bowel train at that same time. He would wait and bm at night with his pull-up on. It took another 6 months to bowel train. I think ti's all about encouragement and rewarding :) Good Luck!
