  • let her go in with u, talk to her about going while u are going and about wiping,,then ask herif she has to go pee..sit her on it..if she goes,make a big deal,jump up and down and say yay!! pick out a toiliet seat(kids) that goes right over the big toiliet..

  • i have apotty seat already, she shows all the signs and has went on it before, then stopped....she seems like she wont do it when i want or ask her to. one time she was running naked and sat on her little potty like she wanted to go ( all on her own) i realized she was half on the seat half off and scooted her back, she FLIPPED out and wouldnt sit back down and peed in her panties after....

  • I just sat my son on the potty chair as I ran his bath at night. Sometimes I would ask at diaper changes if he wanted to sit on it. He eventually accidentally went in it. I made a huge deal and told people that came over for the next couple days. It was a few months before he was really using it frequently. I let him go at his own pace. He was only 23 months the first time so I didn't push it.
