  • Is there a way to discuss with other grandma that putting her in diapers is clearly sabotaging her toilet learning and that she needs to stay on track? If she's not willing to help her potty learn, then maybe she would be willing to forgo a couple of visits so that she can be successful at learning to use the potty.

    Good luck!

  • I would talk to the other grandma and see if you guys can work together to potty train your granddaughter. Hopefully she will agree and you will have no problems.

  • It shouldn't be too touchy to tell the other grandma that she should be enthusiastic and 'on board' to help the lil one get trained. This girl is 3 already, and should have a good start by now. Ask the lil' one if she loves having big girl undies, and hopefully she will relay that message onto grandma#2. You can show her various library books that show how babies have diapers because they can't control muscles.. but you can! GOOD LUCK

  • just keep with it, eventually she will learn that she goes on the potty.. during the weekends if her other grandmother wants to change diapers her loss.. your grand daughter will catch on and get it even without the other support from Grandma #2

  • Keep up with the potty training. She'll eventually start telling lazy gma she's ready to use da potty. Besides, she's w u most of the time. Keep up da good work!! It's a slow process...
