  • Are you using Pull-ups? My aunt's kids were not potty trained until after they were 3. The pull-ups used to have a "feel wet" liner, so they would feel when they were wet. I got one of the potty chairs that had a top that you could flip down so that it turned into a chair. When I was trying to potty train a foster child that was afraid of the potty chair, I would have her sit on it and sit beside her and we would read a book, etc. Before too long she was fine with the chair. Good luck!

  • I just put my kids in underwear and set a timer for every 20 minutes till they got the idea. At night I would not give them anything to drink 2 hrs before bedtime and wake them up before I go to bed and then again in the middle of the night to help with nite time training.
