  • You can try a sticker chart, or give her an M&M when she goes. Set a timer and make her go like every 20 minutes. If she is still having accidents shorten the time. I work in a preschool, and i personally think pull-ups are only useful for nap and bedtime. They are pretty much just glorified diapers, and they are expensive. If you go straight to underwear, they become more aware they have had an accident. If your worried about the laundry, and are a stay at home mom, you can let her go in a dress with nothing on so you aren't going through so many clothes, but only appropriate at home :-)

  • Different idea's... well what have you tried ?

    Does she like the potty?
    Does she know when she needs to pee?
    Can she communicate that she needs to go, or that she's gone?

    First thing you need to figure out is what is preventing her, maybe she just doesn't want to, maybe she doesn't see the benefit, or maybe the potty fell on her head and she hates it.
