I used Puppy Pads to keep any accidents from happening in the stroller or car seat. They gave me peace of mind to taking pottying public.  I also used them in DDs bed so that I didn't have to wash linens if there was an accident during a nap.

Yes. I saw another post about using no pull ups (except for at night) and my daughters have not worn a diaper during the day for a whole week and maybe had about 2 accidents. I keep taking them to the potty But my 3 1/2 yr old would fight me going to the potty until I started giving her a penny for everytime she went. It's cheap, and she loved it. And she put it in her piggy bank. She has woken up in the morning with dry pull ups. She don't ask me for pennies any more after she goes to potty and now they go sometimes with out me taking them.

I would love to try the "no pull ups to underwear" but my husband thinks she will make a mess and he gets frustrated when she goes in her diaper and we ask her if she wants to go and she says no. but the other day she actually tinkled in the toilet. I dont know what to do

Bare bottom, potty where they spend the most time, timing their trips, rushing them to the potty when they do start to go, rewards rewards rewards. There are lots of good posts about it in this group! Ask away!

Messes happen when you are training. It's a fact of life. They are to be expected. Don't ask her to go, take her and put her on the potty. Tell her she'll get a reward for just being on the potty.

Ok my son is two and I'm in the process of potty training him, but he can't talk as well as the either kids. So how do proceed with the training.

Can you teach him to sign?

Can you tell me where to find more info on this method that you mentioned? I have triplets and one of them does not want to go potty. She is very strong will. One is fully done and the third one is half way trained. Need all the help that I can get. Thanks.
