  • i know that they always say girls are easier than boys but from what i have been going through, my boys are easier than my girl! my little girl is 3 now and she will still have accidents and she was pooping just fine but then one day she decided not too anymore. we work everyday with her but it's a struggle. when she started out she did go for a few weeks with no problems but then she did stop and wouldn't start again for a month or two. just have to be patient and keep working with her.

  • I had my first daughter fully out of diapers by 18 months... It took about 2-3 months.. I first started leaving her out of a diaper during the day around 15 months..

  • They have to be ready. My son, we thought he was ready almost a year ago. We had him basically fully potty trained, then one day he decided, nope don't want to anymore. Then all of a sudden about six months later out of the blue he told me he had to pee and he was potty trained within days. Don' t push because it only makes it harder and frustrates you.

  • I started with my daughter about 3 weeks ago. She's 27 months old. She's doing pretty well and wears panties all day.
    I've also heard that kids frequently regress, that potty training is frequently 1 step forward and 2 steps back. I haven't encountered that - yet!
