  • i told my son one day (about 4 months ago) "im throwing away your diapers, if you potty on yourself then youll be yucky and uncomfy"
    he didnt believe me, i guess, but i showed him i threw them out. . . I bought 50 pairs of undies and day 3 he decided he didnt like being out of clothes, he didnt like not beign able to go outside and play, and he didnt like having to clean up his messes on the floor. . . Day 4, 1 accident, but the rest in the toilet. .. . he still has accidents in his sleep about once a week, but hes potty trained now.

  • sounds like she's not ready. Why not just give her more time?

  • my soon to be 3 yr old was being stubborn we have started and stopped and were on a break when she decided to start going and I just went with it....Not sure if I helped at all but evertime she pee or pooped and she hates to be in it I would be like see be better to use the potty....

    If you or her is frustrated take a break....also my oldest was extremely hard but with him we took diapers away and let him feel wetness and poop andat first he did not care but within a few weeks he got pee down. GOOD luck its not easy!

  • I just took the diaper and pull ups away. I made my daughter go without just so she knew she had to get to the toilet. She did great after I took the pull ups away. I did however use them when we went out for the day.

  • OMG, my son did the SAME thing, I wouldnt get mad at him when he had an accident, I would just say, next time we should try to use the potty, so the poopy can say hi to its mommy, after a while it worked but he was almost 4 b4 it happend, dont worry. it will come, just takes time
