  • My son is the same way. He strips off the diaper 6-8 times aday. Hes 2 1/2 and he semi gets the potty thing. I usually just put clothes on over his diaper. Hes not ready for potty training, but doesnt like the wet diaper. So we are just in between phases right now. You can't make her go, so as long as you are doing a routine with her and keeping her on a schedule, she will eventually pick it up, but until then, just put a pull up on her and put some clothes on her. I am kinda laid back about potty training. I just let him go at his own pace.

  • i have always heard to consistant with what u are doing. leave the panties on and at first u maybe the one trained not her. boys seem to start getin it when they are about 3. it will come. i always at first limited or really monitored the drinking. if they went they would be able to have more to drink. sit and read a book or have reading material for the kids to look at while they are sitin on the potty.

  • what i had to do was only give my dd something to drink at meal time, and first thing in the am put her on the potty til she peed, repeat after lunch, dinner and before bed...eventually she got the gist of going pee in the potty and would tell me when she had to pee...good luck, i know potty training can be super frustrating.
