  • Put her on at regularly scheduled times. After meals is good. She stays there till she goes.

  • Have you tried putting her on the potty every 30-45 minutes throughout the day? That's the only thing that worked for my daughter, she was potty trained in a week. Good luck, hope you find something that works for you and your daughter!

  • Pull Ups are a life saver. Don't rush her. It will just make it take longer. Don't make a big deal about the potty and she will eventually go on her own. It was the same with my mom with me sucking my fingers. She took me to the doctor and all he told her was, "Leave her alone. She'll stop when she's ready." So leave her alone, use pull-ups that have the cooling sensation and she'll go on her own eventually, I promise. :)
