Hey moms i could use a bit of help! lol. I have been trying to potty train my two year old, soon to be three year old in june, but its a total fail! :( she shows many signs. Her diapers are dry through the night, she tells me she went right after, she tells me when she need a diaper and she can hold her urine when i put panties on her, but she will NOT just use the potty. She will hold it all day until bath time. I have tried everything. putting on panties, telling her she will get a sucker if she goes, putting her on the chair and reading (distraction), cute pull ups, and letting her go without any sort of bottoms on throughout the day, but nothing! any advice? is she still not ready?

put her on the potty and run the sink water, the sound should get her to go. also stick her hand in warm water.

Start taking her every 30 minutes. Put her on the potty and have her try. When she does reward her with praise or a little gift.. (I e a cookie an m&m etc) She may not realize the actual act and feeling of potty is what you are asking her to do. So when she does it and you reward her she can correlate.

My dd is three and were pt now. She will not tell me she has to go. She wakes up dry. I just take her to the potty every hr and she goes no problem. And if I catch the sign she has to poop I put her on the potty.

Take her every time you go, have her go every 30-60 minutes and "try".  My daughter enjoyed being able to put pretty stickers on her potty char when she would go.

 This is a good idea. It helps to get them into the routine of going to the bathroom often, too. :)

My daughter got into my routine. I would wake up every morning and go to the bathroom. She would follow me in with a dry diaper, sit on her potty, then the diaper would be wet. I let that happen for a week or so then I took her diaper off right before she would sit down and went in her potty. Did a little happy dance for her and then would make her go sit on the potty every time I went. She caught on really quick and was always very proud of herself. I think I got lucky with the whole potty training with her. I hope it gets easier and you get some usefully tips.

With my daughter we made a calander and she knew if she went to the potty X amount of times in a row with no accidents she would get a "prize" ( cupcake, ice cream, new book ect) and everytime she went on the potty we gave her 2 or 3 M&M's.

IMO, no, no she just isn't ready yet. She will learn. I've learned that as frustrating as it can be, that you have to let them lead this stuff. No kid wants to be in diapers forever. Promise.
