I've just started introducing the idea of potty-training to my 17 month old. I've read up on all the "signs" to begin potty training and she definitely seems ready. Everytime I go to "potty", she comes too and I show her how to sit on her potty and tell her that's wear she "pee-pees" she will repeat after me, "potty peepee" (pointing at her potty as she says it) but she jumps off the potty as soon as I sit her there, screaming like she's scared to death and pees on the floor. She'll say "uh-oh" like she knows it was wrong but refuses to sit on her potty. I don't know what to do. Is she not ready? Am I doing something wrong? (It's a plastic Saftey 1st brand potty...not sure if the pottyhas anything to do with it). Thanks for any advice!
