How long does it take to fully potty train your little girl?

I'm just curious. I started potty training my 3 year old girl (now 4) about 4 weeks ago and she's doing an awesome job. I'm wondering how long it will take to get her fully trained.

  • Depends on the child. I've heard it can take a few months to fully potty train.

  • My DD went at her own pace from 18 months to 3. Once I decided enough was enough and we were going o be done it took 2 days.

  • Some take days, some weeks, some months. I think if she's doing that well already then it'll be less than a month even!

  • I have two girls (my oldest and youngest). Older dd was potty trained pretty quickly. She didnt want to do #2 in the potty but if she hadnt had that issue it would have been 3-4 mths at most. My younger dd, well, lol. I started at around 2 and a half and she didnt want anything to do with it until she was almost 4.

  • I started when my oldest turned 2. She still wears a pull up to bed just incase but other wise does very well.

  • It only took a few days with mine. Is yours in underwear? That helped me.
