Holding it in for hours.

At first she would just pee in her undies. Now she doesnt. I have her sit and try every 30-45 mins during the day. NOTHING. She  holds it in. I guess she has a fear of going in the toliet. She will be 3 in Early January. She obviously can hold it and knows when she has to go but...how do I help her get over the fear..

Im gonna try putting a diaper in her potty seat ( this was suggested by a friend of mine).

Any other suggestions?? Right now she is squirming all over the place cuz she needs to go  but she won't...

Dont laugh but I filled a tub with warm water earlier so she would go and she did.  I dont want her holding her pee in all day and I really dont want to resort back to diapers.. What else can I do??

you could try running the water while she's sitting on the potty, or even pouring some warm water down her tummy may make her have to release it.

that's great that she has such great control to hold it! she'll get there as soon as she realizes it's not so scary! :)

also - what about a drink & wet doll she can help 'train'

Well the diaper in the potty seat didnt work. She got mad and took it out and threw it on the floor.  LMAO. I will def try the water thing.

I am trying to stay calm but it drives me nuts because I know she is so close... so so close. LOL

 Can you let her play with a bucket or cup of water while on the potty?
