How old is your little one? I'm currently in the process of potty training my little girl, she's my sixth child, and one thing I have learned about potty training is it is SO MUCH EASIER if you wait until they are 3 or nearly 3 years old. They have better bladder and bowel control, they communicate better, and they are more aware of the socializing aspect of their behavior and actually want to learn for the sake of learning to go toilet. Also, you can often skip the potty altogether and go straight to the toilet which is so much nicer for you! No need for bribes, no frustrating waits while he or she sits there for what seems like hours, trying to "go". Honestly, a few more months of diapers is so worth it!
