  • I hear that if u put them in regular underware and let them feel it, they wont like the feeling and u take them straight to the bathroom when it happens to show them where they should go potty. My mom did that with toddlers, it worked.

  • I bought The Potty Movie and book and my daughter loves them. It has really helped me. They are designed for either a boy or girl. Just google it and I am sure you will find it. Sounds like you already have a good start. Just be patient and don't push her, the pediatrician says that they all do it at a different time. Hope that helps.

  • Lol, I let my girls be old enough to start the transition themselves. One daughter was almost 3 before she was potty trained and the youngest was around 1 1/2 years. The youngest wanted to be like her older sisiter and the older sister wasn't interested in being on anyones time but hers. I showed her what it was, made it a habit to go sit there a few times a day and then she eventual started on her own. Pushing is rediculous. They won't be in diapers in grade one even if you didn't do anything to "train" them

  • I just take DD to the bathroom with me and out her in regular underwear. She's getting the hang of it but it's slow going.
